To assist academically struggling students, institutions rely on interventions such as academicprobation (Arcand & Leblanc, 2012). Nonetheless, many students are dismissed from institutions. Emerging research has focused on exploring student experiences during academicprobation. Findings have been consistent with the negative experiences that students have during academicprobation (Arcand & Leblanc, 2011; Dufy, 2010; Houle, 2013). Further, academicprobation can undermine students’ beliefs in their capabilities to perform academically (self-efficacy) (Arcand & Leblanc, 2012; Hsieh, Sullivan, & Guerra, 2007).
In consideration of the current literature on academicprobation which is mainly descriptive and positivist, recent works suggest a shift towards the uniqueness of experiences of students on academicprobation (Humphrey, 2006; Thomas, 2003; Vander Schee, 2007). This paper presented Mark’s life story, contrasted it to the current literature on academicprobation, and considered it in light of Dewey’s (1958, 1938/1997, 1934/2005) theory of experience. It makes a timely contribution to the research by delving deeper into the personal experience of a student on academicprobation, as promoted by recent literature. Mark’s life story profile reveals a rich, complex, and unique experience and indicates that he does not correspond to the oversimplified image of probationary students depicted in the reviewed literature (Humphrey, 2006). Going beyond characteristics and difficulties, it portrays the events, interactions, and thoughts that had meaning for him, as well as emotions and attitudes they evoked in him (Dewey, 1958). This contributes to a better appreciation of the notion and reality of academicprobation and helps move towards a comprehensive understanding of the experience and conditions of academicprobation.
Students placed on academicprobation will first be reviewed by the PA Program’s Promotions Committee for consideration of denial of advancement or dismissal from the program. Failure of more than one course is grounds for dismissal from the program, regardless of the student’s GPA or grades in other courses. Students on academicprobation (failure to achieve an overall GPA of 3.0 or better) will not be permitted to enter their clinical year. Failure to achieve a grade of Pass in a clinical rotation will result in the student being placed on academicprobation and referral to the Promotions Committee. If a student receives a Low Pass for a clinical rotation, the student must repeat the rotation at the end of the regularly scheduled academic year, thereby delaying his/her graduation. Elective rotations may not be used to repeat a rotation. Any student receiving a second Low Pass for a clinical rotation is subject to dismissal from the program. The Promotions Committee meets every semester to review student academic progress.
If the cumulative grade-point average in your MS work drops below 3.00 in any given semester, you will be placed on academicprobation. You and your adviser/program director must develop a plan to raise your grade-point average above 3.00, normally within the next semester. The Adviser/Program Director and SED Graduate Programs Office must approve this plan. When your cumulative grade-point average again reaches 3.00, the Graduate
Students on good academic standing, academic warning, academicprobation, and academicprobation with monitored academic plan are financial aid eligible (Title IV Programs) as long as they can complete their academic program within the maximum timeframe. The maximum timeframe is the period of time that is no longer than 150% of the length of the academic program. For example, the Registered Nursing associate degree program requires 70 credits to graduate. The total credits required to graduate (70) times 150% is 105 credits. This means that the student must complete the program within the 105 credits to be eligible to receive financial aid. The 105 credits include all transferred, attempted, and completed credits.
Students must pass the final exam of each course (with a score of 75 or higher) in order to pass the course. Any student who fails the first attempt of the final exam of A & P (part I or Part II), Myology (part I or Part II), Pathology I, Neurology, FOM, or Shiatsu will be placed on academicprobation. See the Protocol for Failure of a Course or Failure to Test- in to Clinic below. Such a student will remain on academicprobation until the end of his/her program. Students are entitled to re- take any failed final exam once. This retake must be done within ten days of failing the final exam. NOTE: There is a $35 fee to retake a final. Failure to retake the final exam within ten days of taking the initial exam will result in the student failing the course, and potential dismissal. If a student passes the retake of final exam of a course, s/he will be able to continue in his/her program, but will remain on academicprobation for the remainder of his/her time as a student at CNWSMT. If a student fails the retake of final exam, she has failed the course and must follow the protocol outlined below. All students who take or retake a final exam on the retake date will be charged a fee of $35.
continuing history of low academic performance is placed on academic suspension when the student: 1) Has been on academic warning and probation and; 2) Has a cumulative GPA below 2.0 and; 3) Has a semester GPA below 2.0. An academic suspension will result in a student being denied enrollment for a minimum of one spring or fall semester. Students desiring to appeal a suspension must follow the guidelines stipulated by the individual college at which the majority of their courses have been completed. For more information on appealing a suspension, students may contact their college counseling center. A student who re-enters the college after having been suspended will return on academicprobation status and will be subject to the requirements outlined above. Financial Aid Students: Students receiving financial assistance must make satisfactory academic prog- ress in accordance with this system policy and are also subject to the academic progress requirements governing financial assistance awards. Students on academic warning, probation, continued probation, or suspension, and also receiving financial assistance are encouraged to contact their college financial aid office to determine further eligibility.
Boston University offers its students an enormous array of intellectual opportunities and resources on both the Medical and Charles River Campuses. In addition to the required academic requirements, it is up to you to make choices that best enhance your career preparation. In order to assist you with these decisions, you will be assigned a faculty advisor upon accepting the School's offer of admission. Your advisor is available to discuss coursework, potential research topics, career paths, and other issues relevant to the student’s success; however, the student bears all responsibility for meeting administrative and academic requirements and deadlines. Your advisor can help you make the most of your investment.
In July 2002, John H. Erickson, longtime Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Church History and Canon Law, succeeded Fr Hopko, becoming the first layman and the first convert to serve as dean. Ordained to the priesthood during his tenure, Fr John launched a new strategic plan, SVS 2010, which aimed at enhancing the formation of seminarians for service to the Church, improving the scope and effectiveness of the seminary’s outreach, and developing the human and financial resources needed for sustaining the seminary’s work. A major portion of the strategic plan included an intensive four-year study and development of “the Good Pastor” project, an ongoing effort to equip seminarians with the knowledge and skills they need to lead and serve the Church in the modern world. The project was a precursor to the new curriculum, implemented in 2007, and to the formalized Wives Program (now known as St Juliana Society). Also during his tenure, eighteen new units of married student housing were constructed,
