Trouble with a Course

Issues with a Specific Class or Classes

If a course is not going as well as you'd like, you have some options.

First and most important, honesty is the best policy in this situation.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Does staying in the class make sense?
  • Is it realistic for you to develop a plan for success?
  • Without changing anything, do you expect that your final grade will improve?
  • Are you motivated to make behavioral changes that can improve your performance in the course or subject area?
  • Is it a class or subject that you have always struggled with in school?

Here are your options:

Academic Status Concerns

Probation - If you are on probation, you are required to meet with a counselor to discuss:

  • Strategies to improve your GPA
  • Course retake options
  • Personal concerns affecting academic performance
  • Academic resources you might consider

Suspension - If you have been placed on suspension, you are required to meet with a counselor after you have sat out the required number of semesters, in order to enroll in courses again. Counselors will discuss:

  • How to improve your GPA
  • Course retake options
  • Personal concerns affecting academic performance
  • Academic resources you might consider

Appeals - You may be eligible to use the appeal process to determine if your academic status may be changed.

For a detailed description of our policy, refer to our Academic Progress Board Policy.
