Welcome to the Engineering Academic Success online workshop for Spring Semester 2018! Our goal is to help you jump start your academic performance this semester. This workshop will help you understand your academic standing, identify strengths and obstacles, and create goals and action plans to achieve academic success.
How long will it take to complete the workshop?
Plan to spend around 30 minutes to complete this workshop. It is offered entirely online, so you can do it anytime, even when you are away from campus.
When is the deadline for completing the workshop?
Plan to complete this workshop before the semester begins. The workshop helps you create a plan you can put into action from your very first day of classes. HIstorically, students who completed the workshop before the start of the semester were much more likely to return to good academic standing than students who completed it later in the semester.
At the latest, you should complete this workshop by the third Friday of the semester. If you haven’t completed the workshop by this deadline, you will have a scheduling hold placed on your Buckeye Link account. You will not be able to schedule future courses until you have completed the workshop.
What is covered in the workshop?
We start with the basics — explaining your academic standing, minimum standards you need to meet to continue at Ohio State, ways to avoid academic dismissal or pursue reinstatement in the future. The majority of the workshop focuses on setting you up for success — exploring your strengths, identifying obstacles in your path, finding resources, and creating goals and action steps to achieve those goals. The last step is a final quiz to ensure you are prepared for the semester and have an understanding of your options and expectations.
Do I need to have anything for the workshop?
The only item you need to “bring” is a willingness to reflect on past experiences and an openness to trying a new approach. We will guide you through everything else!
Ready to get started? Great! Let’s begin with the first section, an overview of your academic standing.
