If your cumulative GPA falls below 2.0, you will be placed on academic probation. Terms of academic probation include required weekly MAP program participation during the probation semester. Meetings with the assigned MAP advisor will be scheduled around your schedule as standing appointments (the same day and time every week).
If you are on academic probation, the purpose of MAP meetings is to help you get back on track. You can expect to discuss classes as well as other things that are happening in your life that may impact your success as a student. Your conversations with your MAP advisor will focus on changes that will make a difference academically. MAP advisors will also get faculty feedback throughout the semester. Using self-reported information from you as well as that from your instructors, MAP advisors can provide accountability that has the potential to translate to academic success.
If you are required to participate in the program, you will receive your MAP advisor assignment in writing shortly before the start of the semester. When you first meet with your advisor, you will be asked to sign a contract committing to follow the program’s established rules and responsibilities. You will be expected to attend a minimum of 75 percent of scheduled MAP meetings and to earn a term GPA of at least 2.0. Doing so will constitute successful completion of the program; however, you may elect to continue program participation beyond the required semester, subject to advisor availability.
Consequences for failure to follow through on program responsibilities range from continuing required MAP participation to academic suspension for one calendar year.
