All About Academic Probation
Mon, 28 August 2017, 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM PDT
If you are returning from suspension or have been placed on Academic Probation, this session is for you. Come and learn what VIU expects from students who are placed on Academic Probation and what it takes to get your Academic Probation status lifted. Like being at a flashing yellow light, it is time to proceed with caution. This is a time when you might like to reassess where you are, what you have accomplished, what your challenges are and increase your circle of support as you proceed with your academic plans.
Take time to determine what you want by being able to articulate answers to these questions:
- What is important to me regarding school?
- Who do I want to be in this setting?
- What do I want to achieve?
- How will I achieve my goals?
- What resources will I access to increase my chances of success.
Bring all your questions to this session so you can leave the workshop knowing what Academic Probation means.
You will also be introduced to some famous people who experienced failure and then went on to achieve greatly in their field.
Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Bring your ticket and VIU student card for entry to the workshop
What are my transportation/parking options for getting to and from the event?
