Academic Probation Intervention through Academic Assistance Advising
Preuss, Michael; Switalski, Rachael
Online Submission
Retaining and aiding students on academic probation is a concern for all institutions of higher education. Students placed on academic probation by Rockingham Community College (RCC) have been encouraged to participate in an intervention program since the summer of 2006. When treated as an aggregate, the data regarding the program indicates that it was associated with positive impact on student outcomes. Active participation in the program was associated with significant increases in the likelihood that students on probation would avoid suspension, would improve their GPA, and would remain enrolled in their classes at the college. There were no discernible differences in outcomes for the various age, sex and race groups indicating a lack of bias in the programming. These results indicate that academic assistance advising is a potentially effective intervention with probationary students in college. (Contains 2 tables.)
