Students are invited to attend workshops on Jan. 10 focused on time management, stress management, and study skills.
The workshops will run continuously from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the Student Success Center second floor conference room.
The workshops are a new initiative offered through the UALR Academic Success Center (ASC), in coordination with Undergraduate Academic Advising, Records and Registration, and Financial Aid.
Although the primary audience is returning freshmen and sophomore students recently placed on academic probation, any student who believes he or she may benefit from the workshops may attend.
“These workshops are being offered to help students get their semester started in a positive and helpful manner,” said ASC Director Kimberly Bright.
In addition, Bright suggested students visit with their advisor about re-registering for certain classes in which a poor grade was received. Also, a visit to Financial Aid to see how probation may affect continued access to financial aid is highly recommended.
“If a student received one or more poor grades, one of the best ways to avoid a negative impact on their academic standing is to retake those classes,” Bright said.
“The sooner the student gets that GPA up, the quicker they are able to be in good academic standing and off probation; this is something all of us want for our students.”
