What is Academic Recovery?

Academic Recovery is for students who do not meet BSU's Satisfactory Performance. Students must design and implement a comprehensive plan leading to satisfactory academic performance. Satisfactory Performance is a cumulative grade point average of 2.00.

What Is An Academic Recovery Plan?

An Academic Recovery Plan (ARP) outlines the student's academic goals for the semester, as well as specific steps that will facilitate academic success. Students are highly encouraged to be committed to their ARP.

In order for your Academic Recovery Plan to be a successful one, you must first identify the factors that caused you to perform unsatisfactorily. Make the necessary changes. Know the grades you need to obtain to raise your GPA and actively participate in the Academic Advisement Center's Recovery Programs.
