Get Back On Track
Our Academic Recovery Program is designed to help students get back on track and achieve their academic goals. See below for more information about the program and contact Esther Rosier with any questions.
Academic Probation and Recovery
All students must maintain a 2.0 GPA to be in good academic standing. Academic Probation is a status that indicates a student’s academic work is below the expected standard. The Academic Recovery program is designed to aid students in achieving their academic goals and rebuilding their CUMGPA to a 2.0 or higher.
Academic Resources for the Recovery Program
Each semester students are provided with resources that focus on (1) academic and personal development, (2) college readiness and (3) holistic wellness.
Each student on the program is given a success coach who will work with them bi-weekly to complete their academic goals, improve their time management, and study skills, while also encouraging them throughout the semester.
Students meet with the Assistant Director of Academic Recovery and Resources to discuss their academic progress and personal wellbeing.
- Early Semester Check-in
- Discuss courses for the upcoming and analyze the last semester to create a strategic individualized plan.
- Mid Semester Check-in
- Examine their midterm grades and progress reports so their strategic plan can be revised to reflect what needs to be done in the second half of the semester.
- End of Semester Check-in
- Reflect on their final grades and talk about the next steps for students who are still below the academic standard.
A time is set aside during the school day for students to work independently on homework. Students must attend study hall at least 2 hours a week.
Be Well Initiative
A wellness initiative created to give students a place to talk about their non-academic concerns with other students who are going through similar situations.
After one term on probation, students who are still not in good academic standing will be academically suspended. Students are subject to academic suspension or dismissal at any time for poor academic standing or for failure to demonstrate academic progress. Excessive course withdrawals and no credit (NC) grades regardless of the student’s quality-point index, are an example of the student’s failure to demonstrate academic progress. In addition, students are subject to academic suspension or dismissal based on recommendation of the faculty committee on Academic Integrity. Students who have been suspended will have the option to utilize SFC’s partnership with Kingsborough Community College’s New Start Program.
Kingsborough Community College New Start Program
New Start is a program designed to assist students who have had academic difficulty at certain cooperating senior colleges. Students eligible for New Start are admitted to Kingsborough as students in good academic standing. They may enroll in any of Kingsborough's degree programs and may register for day, evening, or weekend classes on a full-time or part-time basis. Up to 30 previous college credits can be applied toward an associate degree at Kingsborough, with no prior grades carried over. St. Francis College students who successfully complete the program with their associate degree will be allowed to readmit, on probation, to complete their SFC bachelor’s degree (student can readmit as long as no other holds are on the student’s account)
