Probation/Dismissal Workshops

Our workshops have been designed to assist students who are having difficulty with successfully maintaining a "good standing" status in their academic/progress achievement. The purpose of the workshop is to teach you to understand your academic record, evaluate your academic situation, create SMART goals and develop a Plan of Action.  By the end of the workshop, you will have examined your academic standing and applied critical thinking skills to develop an action plan.
