The University at Albany is committed to helping students navigate their path to academic success. We want you to know that it is not uncommon for students to struggle during different moments in their academic journey and that we are here to help you as you begin your academic recovery and regain good academic standing!
The University at Albany has created the Academic Recovery Program to provide personalized and collaborative support for students when they are facing academic difficulties and are in a probationary academic standing.
As part of the University at Albany Academic Recovery Program, you are partnered with an academic recovery advocate who will work with you to target and enhance your strengths, help you understand and correct your weaknesses, and introduce you to several personalized academic support opportunities, including tutoring.
Your academic recovery advocate is here to support you and is invested in getting to know you and working with you to develop a path to success. In some instances, your advocate is also your academic advisor. We encourage you to connect honestly with your advocate as this is critical to building a strong relationship and helps your advocate understand your unique situation. This is essential, as your advocate will work closely with you to develop an individualized program for your success. In addition, your advocate will work with you to identify what affected your academic success, how to avoid academic pitfalls in the future, and how to succeed at the University at Albany.
We are excited to begin! Simply complete the short contract with your Advocate and take the first step to developing your academic greatness!
As part of the academic recovery program:
You will connect with your academic recovery advocate weekly, whether through in-person meetings, Skype conversations, telephone conversations, or email.
You will participate in weekly one-on-one academic tutoring or small group tutoring sessions to deepen your understanding of a particular class/subject.
You will participate in weekly study skills and/or time management sessions in an effort to help you better organize your time and to study more effectively.
