Retaining Students on Probation: An Academic Counseling Model.
This manual, developed for college counseling services, outlines the design and administration of the Academic Probation Program at the University of Arkansas. An overview of the individualized program, which focuses on academic coping skills, and guidelines for the seven stages of implementation are given, including orientation, the initial interview, bi-monthly academic monitoring conferences, the transcript interview, the review of goals interview, the final interview, and the petitioning interview. For each stage, the procedures, format, and requisite forms are given. A student handbook for academic probation is presented, which includes survival skill strategies, a student academic status flowchart, a list of "mentors" in each of the university's colleges, an explanation of the grade renewal policy, withdrawal procedures, grade point average calculations, and suspension procedures and outcomes. The manual concludes with a spring 1983 end-of-semester status report and retention percentages. (BL)
