The Academic Recovery Program (ARP) is a program designed to assist students having academic difficulty. The Academic Standing Committee (ASC) and the Center review the grades of every Tougaloo College student. Academic statuses are determined for students who encountered academic difficulty during the semester. The academic recovery process begins once the office receives the list of the names and academic statuses of the students.
The program is mandatory for students on academic probation. It is voluntary for all other students. The goal of the program is to allow students to become successful academically by assisting the development of critical skills, such as time management, goal setting, organization, use of available resources, and balancing academic and social demands.
The Center for Student Advising and Retention/One Stop Services is committed to improving studentís academic performance. Our academic recovery program allows us to gauge the studentís progress and determine whether the provided services are effective and/or need revision. The process begins with the initial contact with the student.
The contact may be voluntary in which the student presents him/her self to the office for assistance or through referral.
Most referrals are made by the Academic Standing Committee, Financial Aid, faculty or staff. The reason for the referral may be due to low academic performance in class, low or non-attendance, academic probation or suspension, or conditional enrollment. Once the referral is made, the Student Academic Success Center contacts the student. Once the initial contact is made the individual needs of the student are assessed and the monitoring process is initiated.
The Academic Recovery Program consists of 6 components: Intake, Development of a Learning Agreement, Bi-Weekly Advising Sessions, Mid-Term Grades Review, Subsequent Visit Surveys and Final Grades Review.
