ARP Contract | Academic Recovery Program Contract for students returning on probation. Students who are on ARP for the first time will be required to meet with a Peer Mentor in addition to their weekly advocate meetings. Mentors will focus on academic and skill building modules focused around the direct needs of the student.

The Academic Recovery Program (ARP) helps students who have been placed on academic probation achieve classroom success. Participants work one-on-one with a personal advocate, either a faculty or staff member, who will help them work toward achieving their academic goals. Advocates also help steer students to helpful campus resources, such as the Counseling Center, the Center for Accommodative Services and the Academic Success Center.

It is critical that students make proactive steps toward their own success. That’s why students who choose to participate in the Academic Recovery Program sign a contract pledging to comply with the program’s conditions.
