Data indicate that ACP participants finish their semester with a higher average QPA than non-participants. They are also more likely to attain regular academic standing, and are more likely to continue at the University of Lynchburg.
ACP participants meet regularly with an academic coach and help students adjust to the college setting while learning how to make good academic choices, and improve study skills that will allow the student to be successful.
Topics students explore with their coach:
- Time management
- Study habits and organization
- Balancing academic and social demands
Academic Probation and Suspension
Coaching is offered to help students on Academic Probation return to good standing. If students find themselves on academic probation, Karen Hatter, our program coordinator, invites them to participate in academic coaching. Participation in coaching is expected by students who are on Academic Probation and strongly encouraged for students who are on Academic Warning.
If students return from academic suspension, participation in the Academic Coaching Program is required as a condition of readmission.
