Students on academic probation have fallen below minimum GPA standards and risk being expelled from the University. These students not only have GPA issues but often need help perfecting study skills and time management. This workshop covers the role of the advisor concerning students on probation. Advisors play a big role in not only helping the student plan to increase his/her GPA but also referring the student for various types of assistance.
