Resources for Current Students

Academic Trouble

We recommend that you speak with your instructor if you are experiencing difficulty in a course. There may be strategies for you to try on your own with the help of the instructor. If you continue to have concerns there are other resources on campus:

Mid-term Warning Letters

The University of Vermont has implemented an Academic Alert System to give you the opportunity to address your status with sufficient time remaining in the semester to improve your grades. If you receive a mid-term warning letter, you should contact your instructor immediately to discuss your standing in the class and how you can improve your status.

If there’s reason to believe that your difficulties affecting your academic performance are due to other/outside factors, please consider these campus resources:

Academic Probation

A student is considered in good standing when both their semester and cumulative grade point averages are 2.00 or above. If you are concerned that you will not meet this minimum standard, please meet with an advisor in the Dean’s Office.

Also, please see Academic Probation for more information.
