ARS 100 is a coaching-based course that spans the entire semester. Students are assigned an academic recovery coach who they must meet with at least 2 times throughout the semester. There are also online assignments that will be completed via Canvas.  You must complete all assignments by the due date(s) listed on the syllabus. ARS 100 is a P (pass), NP (no pass) course.  Failure to complete all required assignments and coach meetings will result in a grade of NP for the course.

ARS 100 is worth zero credits, which means that it does not alter your cost of attendance. Your final grade in ARS 100 (P or NP) will not impact your GPA.

As a student on Academic Probation, you are expected to meet the terms of your probationary status or restore Academic Good Standing.  Failure to meet these requirements will result in Academic Suspension from UNCG.  In rare circumstances, you may encounter unexpected and extenuating circumstances that significantly inhibit your ability to meet the parameters of your probationary status. When situations like this arise, you may want to consider appealing your Academic Suspension.

Following Academic Suspension, students must reapply to the university through the former student application with the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and complete an academic re-orientation meeting with SFO.
