A Plan for Academic Success: Helping Academically Dismissed Students Achieve Their Goals
Cherry, Lynn; Coleman, Lindy
Learning Assistance Review, v15 n2 p21-32 Fall 2010
This article describes a unique process which allows a select few students who have been dismissed for academic deficiency the opportunity to create a Plan for Academic Success (Plan), which, if accepted, reverses the academic dismissal for one semester. If the Plan is accepted, the individual student assumes responsibility for taking action to complete the required steps which will ultimately bring the Plan to fruition. The findings based on data from Fall 2002-Fall 2007 indicate that students whose Plans were accepted were academically successful and were retained at a rate consistent with the retention rate of the institution as a whole.
