Academic Recovery

Coming Academic Year 2019

Academic Recovery Program (ARP)

The Academic Recovery Program is an opportunity for you to strengthen your academic skills while evaluating your education, career direction and personal goals. In the ARP, students will continue their education while attending regular meetings with an Academic Advisor and Academic Coach, and building skills to give you the greatest chance at success. The NCMC community is here to support you every step of the way!

Program Eligibility

The ARP is for students finding themselves on academic probation or academic suspension. NCMC students who find themselves on Continued Probation will be required to complete the ARP program.  Students from other institutions can use NCMC’s ARP as a great opportunity to continue their education at NCMC while gaining the skills they need to improve their academic standing before graduating or transferring to pursue a high degree.
