Academic Planning_Rebounding From a Tough Semester
Read this document to learn how to rebound from a challenging semester.
A successful academic rebound is achievable! It will require action on your part to assess your academic strengths and weaknesses, and to identify college support areas available to you. Check with your academic advisor for guidance. You will also want to explore services from campus counseling services, tutoring services, financial aid and/or disability services. Set up support services early in the semester following your challenging term.
Re-familiarize yourself with institutional policies - academics, grading, GPA requirements, and academic deadlines. You are responsible for your academic success. Consider creating a lighter, more manageable course schedule. Or think about taking a more demanding class with one that you may find less demanding. Slow and steady wins the race!
Assess Personal Wellbeing
Mental and physical wellbeing are important factors in academic motivation, persistence and success. Create time and space to manage your unique wellness needs.
Time management is one of the most important factors in academic success. Be realistic about your academic, work, social and family commitments, and the amount of time you can budget for each.
Next Step: Support is available to you. Review the institutional support services and connect with your institution to get the help you need.
