Students returning to UNCG after being placed on Academic Suspension are required to enroll in and complete ARS 120: Academic Connections in Education (ACE) during their semester of return. Components of the program focus on establishing strong connections between students and the resources around them including an assigned academic coach, their course instructors, and the tools at their disposal.
Together with their academic coach, ARS 120 students will explore their strengths, identify strategies for success, and build a support network on campus. The academic connections students build throughout the semester will be a valuable component of their individual UNCG support network and a critical part of their academic recovery journey.
Students in the seated section of ARS 120 will engage in three (3) one-on-one sessions with an Academic Coach in addition to online coursework. Students will also select one of the pre-selected campus resources to use throughout the semester and connect with each of their course instructors during office hours for two (2) Instructor Feedback assignments.
Students who are distance learners enrolled exclusively in online coursework will complete online modules with frequent outreach and feedback from an online coach in lieu of in-person meetings.
Program benefits include:
- Guidance on University policies and procedures from an Academic Recovery Specialist
- The opportunity to explore solutions to academic obstacles with peer and professional support
- Development of an academic and personal support network
