Academic Recovery Plan: Details

An Academic Recovery Plan is required for students on  scholastic probation, defined as failing to meet a cumulative TAMUCC GPA of 2.0, and is an agreement between the student and Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi to ensure successful academic performance. 

While students end up on Scholastic Probation for various reasons, students who can correctly identify previous inhibitors to academic progress and formulate a plan to address previous and new challenges, often excel academically.

The Academic Recovery Plan (ARP) serves to bridge these elements: a collaborative effort to identify potential inhibitors, a collaborative effort to identify steps conducive to overcoming challenges, and the adoption of best practices through participation in the Academic Collegiate Excellence (ACE) program. 

The Academic Collegiate Excellence (ACE) program is comprised of three primary components:

1. Group attendance in ACE workshops rooted in academic success strategies (and)
2. One-on-One meetings with a CASA Scholastic Performance Specialist (and)
3. Participation in co-curricular programming (Academic, Social, Personal/Wellness, and/or Financial) as necessary.
