Many students experience minor setbacks while in college. As a student who
has been placed on academic probation for the Spring 2021 term, we want to assure
you and your family that our team is dedicated to assist you with returning to
good academic standing. We know that this year had its unique challenges.
We hope that you will embrace the support we are offering so that you can make
progress towards your degree and return to good academic standing.
The online Mid -Year Academy (MYA) is the first step for Chambers students on academic probation. This module is designed to connect you to student support services throughout the fall semester including academic tutoring, success coaching and supportive academic advising. It will also explain important topics like the D/F repeat policy and maintaining satisfactory academic progress for financial aid.
The goal of the MYA is to place you on the pathway to good academic standing to help you persist to graduation. To keep us accountable to you, and you accountable to us, we expect you to enter into a probation contract with the Chambers College of Business and Economics. This contract will stipulate your spring 2021 course schedule, support services geared toward your individual needs, resources to help you navigate the academic rigor of college, and benchmarks for achieving a minimum GPA of 2.0 to earn good academic status and to avoid academic suspension.
