Students are also placed on academic probation if their "term" or semester UC GPA falls below 1.5 for one semester.
Identify all students in level 4 and 5 who had failed 50% or more of their credits in Semester 1
Design and deliver a programme to improve academic engagement and performance of struggling students.
…….you are expected to undergo an Academic Probation Programme.
You are required to follow a support programme that has been developed to help improve your academic performance and show the Faculty that you are fully engaged with your studies.
Failure to engage with the academic probation programme may influence decisions on opportunities for reassessment or repeat of modules.
This self assessment is a modification of that developed by Baylor University and that developed by Brigham Young University
