Changes to Academic Probation Advising
The Learning Center is modifying the academic probation advising process to increase the number of students who remain in good standing by taking a more proactive approach. We hope to accomplish this by engaging students in a personalized online tutorial and making additional resources available. Changes in academic probation advising are highlighted below:
- Students on academic probation will use a highly interactive and dynamic website to help them understand what academic probation means and HSU's academic expectations of them. The tutorial will also review aspects of their DARs that relate to GPA, inform them of relevant academic resources, and emphasize recommendations for getting back into good standing. The specific information that students receive will depend on their responses throughout the tutorial.
- Once students complete the tutorial, a copy of their responses in the form of an Academic Success Plan will automatically be emailed to their faculty advisors. Advisors will be able to see the list of courses that the student intends to take during the semester and the resources which s/he is interested in utilizing.
- Meetings with faculty advisors and Learning Center staff will be strongly recommended but not required for the release of registration holds. Once students complete the online tutorial, their Academic Probation (AP) hold will be lifted within one business day.
- We have enhanced our Academic Probation FAQ website. Information about academic probation will be easily available to students, faculty, staff, and parents through our Frequently Asked Questions page.
- In addition to completing the tutorial, students who are affiliated with EOP/SSS (Educational Opportunity Program/Student Support Services) will still be required to meet individually with their EOP/SSS advisor.
- We invite you to take the tutorial to learn more about the process and its content. You can access it by going to the Learning Center's AP Tutorial webpage and clicking on "enable preview mode."
We appreciate your partnership in supporting students and welcome your feedback regarding the new process. Please contact Su Karl, Learning Center Director, 707-826-5206, if you have any questions.
