background
Creation of Academic Probation Task Force

Problems with current/old policy:- the timing of quality point deficiencies triggering academic probation- the lack of a coordinated intervention system- the inconsistency between the university academic standards and those of student financial aid- multiple policies = confusion

Background
objectives
Identify students who are not making satisfactory progress and place them on probation at the earliest point possible.

Assist students on probation by requiring an intervention to identify and assist them with the academic challenges contributing to their poor performance.

Maintain the integrity of the Iowa State University baccalaureate degrees.

Academically dismiss students who fail to make satisfactory academic progress in a timely manner.

Provide a second chance (reinstatement), thus giving students the opportunity to demonstrate change.

Objectives
new policy focus objective
The focus of the new Academic Probation Policy is to provide intervention at the first sign of academic difficulty.

The objective of the new policy is to ensure that students succeed academically and graduate from Iowa State.

Try to imagine that you are a student in being placed on probation.

Now, as a student, think about the following:

How would you react to being placed on probation?

Why does Iowa State bother to place students on probation?

Role Play

Emotional (affective): shame, anger, sadness, depression, embarrassment

Rationalize (cognitive): Why me?, Blame others, Make excuses (parents inquire?)

Physical (behavioral): Reflect on past behavior, seek help, lose interest and give up, engage in self-destructive activities or self-defeating thoughts

How do students react to being placed on probation?
why would iowa state place students on probation
Thinking like a student…

Who cares? It is my business!

Punishment (student’s view)

Academic advisers are critical to the success of Iowa State students and the academic intervention program!

advising is key
“Good advising may be the single most underestimated characteristic of a successful college experience.”

~Richard Light, 2001, Making the Most of Campus

“Advising is viewed as a way to connect students to the campus and help them feel that someone is looking out for them.”

~George Kuh, 2005, Student Success in College

“Academic Advising is the only structured activity on the campus in which all students have the opportunity for one-to-one interaction with a concerned representative of the institution.”

~Wes Habley, 1981, NASPA Journal

Advising is Key!
purpose of the adviser meeting
Goals of the adviser meeting include:

Evaluating current class schedule and making changes if needed.
