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.

Students enrolled in an Academic Recovery Plan must meet with their CASA Scholastic Performance Specialist a minimum of five times throughout the course of the semester.
