Academic Eligibility

Probation

What is Probation?

Students who successfully appeal their “Suspension – Not Eligible to Enroll” status are granted one term of Probation. Probation is a one term opportunity to return to Good Standing. During the term on Probation, students must engage in the Restoring Eligibility Program and work closely with Undergraduate Retention as well as other resources on campus. Students must review their academic status at the end of every term. The official academic status in ConnectCarolina for students on Probation is “Probation – Eligible to Enroll.” Academic status is found under the “Academics” tab in “Student Center.” Students will have a status of “Probation – Eligible to Enroll” if they have been approved for Probation by appeal.

What do I do if I am on Probation?

The first thing a student on Probation should do is make a commitment to return to good academic standing. If you are on Probation during a Spring or Fall semester, you must engage in the restoring eligibility program within the first 3 weeks of the term. This process consists of personal reflection, goal setting, and working with campus resources in order to achieve success. One of the key elements of Probation is maintaining your relationship with your Retention Counselor. All of the program elements are outlined in a Sakai course designed for students on Probation. There are two ways to participate:

Option 1:

  1. Complete the online Self-Assessment.
  2. Schedule & attend an Academic Success Consultation with your assigned Undergraduate Retention Counselor.
    • Bring a printed copy of the Self-Assessment to your Consultation.
    • Bring confirmation of a scheduled Academic Advising Appointment with you to the Consultation.
    • Complete the Academic Success Plan with the Retention Counselor (you will be provided this worksheet at the meeting) and assign Sakai Modules for growth.
  3. Complete required Modules available on Sakai & Academic Success Plan items.
    • Note: Completion of required Modules and utilization of resources will be considered if an appeal for Probation is necessary.
  4. Attend your appointment with an Academic Advisor.
    • All students on Probation are expected to meet with an Academic Advisor at least one time during the semester to discuss their progress towards returning to good standing.
    • You must make an appointment using the online appointment scheduler.
    • Walk-in appointments cannot be used to fulfill the requirements for Warning.
  5. Restoring Eligibility Reflection
    • Within your Academic Success Consultation, you will have the opportunity to identify your goals for the term. No sooner than two weeks later, we will invite you to reflect on your progress in these goals and your utilization of campus resources in one of two ways:
      • Completion of an online survey. You will be sent the survey two weeks after your meeting and will have the opportunity to share your progress with your Retention Counselor.
      • Complete a follow-up Academic Success Consultation. We know that personal accountability can be a powerful motivator. Our team is here to support you in achieving your goals by talking through your strategies, obstacles, and devising a plan.

Option 2:

  1. Complete the online Self-Assessment.
  2. Register for Road to Resilience: a supportive, small-group experience in which students on Warning/Probation meet on a weekly basis to reflect on past habits, develop personal ownership over their personal and academic success, and strengthen academic skills while developing a community with their peers.

  3. Schedule & Attend an Academic Advising Appointment
    • All students on Probation are expected to meet with an Academic Advisor at least one time during the semester to discuss their progress towards returning to good standing.
    • You must make an appointment using the online appointment scheduler.
    • Walk-in appointments cannot be used to fulfill the requirements for Probation.
  1. Restoring Eligibility Reflection: During the last week of Road to Resilience, you will reflect on your progress for your goals and utilization of campus resources in an online form.

What happens if I do not engage in Restoring Eligibility?

There will be a hold place on student accounts in the third week of the semester. This hold will be removed once students have completed their Academic Success Consultation (or engagement in Road to Resilience) and confirmed the scheduled Academic Advising appointment.

What if I want to have individual and small group support?

We invite students to take advantage of all of the resources available, including both the Academic Success Consultation and Road to Resilience.

*If you are unable to attend a scheduled meeting, it is a common courtesy to provide advanced notice so that other students may benefit from this availability.

When should I engage in the Restoring Eligibility Program?
The Restoring Eligibility Program is designed to support you in achieving academic success while on Probation. The sooner you take action and utilize the available resources, the more you will benefit. We encourage you to complete the Self-Assessment within the first few weeks of classes. A hold will be placed on your account after the third week of classes which will prevent you from registering for future terms. This hold will be removed once you have completed the Restoring Eligibility Reflection and confirm your scheduled Academic Advising appointment.
