Advising Students on Academic Probation - 2nd Edition
As college students pursue their undergraduate degrees, they encounter many challenges along the way, including occurrences of academic struggle and disappointment. Once students are placed on academic probation, they increase the chance of not graduating and obtaining a degree. The literature highlights the academic advising process as a crucial link between the student on academic probation and the institution, and the positive effect that advising can have on collegiate success and retention; research on academic advising and student retention shows that advisors can impact the academic success and retention of students on probation. Drawing on extensive experience with students on academic probation, Shelly Gehrke (Emporia State University), Stacey Braun (Kansas State University), and Maureen McCoy (University of Louisville) discuss student characteristics related to academic probation, holistic approaches to advising these students, campus partnership responsibilities and interventions, and the implications of institutional and student partnerships. “Voices from the Field” contributions are shared by advising personnel at ten institutions.
