Academic Probation

The Turning Point program is designed for and required of students on academic probation. In order to determine the cause of your probation and to plan for academic success, you will need to take action during the very first part of the semester. Program completion is due by the 10th day of classes (Friday, September 1, 2017 or Friday, January 19, 2018 ).
