New program offers support for students facing dismissal

August 10, 2016

Yukon College is enhancing its efforts around student retention with the introduction of a new support framework for students who are on academic probation or facing academic dismissal. Drawing on successful university programs in British Columbia and Alberta, the REBOOT program will connect students with the college’s Learning Assistance Centre to develop a personalized plan that fits the students’ schedules and addresses the specific challenges they are facing. The program will target both academic and non-academic issues in the students’ lives, offering sessions and/or workshops on study skills, time management, exam preparation, reducing test anxiety, and personal budgeting tips. Students can also get advice and access to additional resources available in the college and community.
