So I'm on Academic Probation, now what?

Take a deep breath! Being on academic probation can be overwhelming. The Learning Center is here to help you get the skills and support your need to raise your GPA.

All students on academic probation are required to complete a mandatory academic intervention provided by The Learning Center. These interventions are designed to help you improve your academics. It is crucial that you commit to your academic success this semester and fully complete your academic intervention!

    • Students on academic probation are required to enroll in and complete a mandatory academic intervention

    • The Learning Center offers multiple academic intervention options. Some interventions are restricted based on number of credits earned at CCSU

    • Students who are granted a second semester of academic probation must have at least one mandatory meeting with an academic coach and complete an Academic Success Plan

    • A completed Academic Success Plan may also be required for students submitting a Satisfactory Academic Progress Appeal (SAP Appeal) for financial aid.
