We are a small college with @800 students. At midterms we run a deficiency list for students with Ds or lower. At that time the Learning Resource Center tries to touch base with those students via e-mail or telephone calls. This hopefully helps students before they get on probation. We have some statisticalevidence that our probation list has dropped from 7% of our students to 5% of our students. After a student is on probation, the College takes a number of steps: (1) that student is only allowed to take 13 credits the semester following beingplaced on probation (2) If the student has not previously taken a study skills course, they must take the study skills course. I hope this helps.
