Undergraduate Probation Intervention Program [UPIP]

Students who are placed on Academic Probation in their sophomore, junior or senior year participate in the Undergraduate Probation Intervention Program.  Together, with their Class Deans, students develop personal and academic plans with dual goals: to take ownership of their academic performance and to achieve the necessary standard to be removed from probation.  There are myriad intervening factors which can contribute to academic difficulty. Students work to pinpoint those and develop strategies to mitigate them. 

The program formally consists of:

  • Personal/academic development
  • Following the goals outlined in that plan
  • Regular meetings with your Class Dean
  • Consultation with your Faculty
  • Meeting with your Academic Adviser
  • Attending workshops/activities

Students who are required to participate in the program will recieve an email with details.  If you think you would benefit from participating but are not on probation, please feel free to contact us.  The support provided in this program is available to all students.

This program is facilitated by the Class Deans in collaboration with the Counseling Center and the Advising and Learning Assistance Center.
