  1. Online Reflection Exercise - Compulsory
  2. Back on Track Program - Compulsory

1. Online Reflection Exercise

Before you meet with your Academic Adviser you need to think about what happened to lead you to being placed on Academic Caution. You also need to have given some thought to what you intend to do this semester to get your university studies back on track and improve your results. Use your Record of Academic Advice form to record this information (that was enclosed with your Notice of Academic Caution). Complete the personal reflection exercise.
