Academic Difficulties

Throughout your university life you may experience academic difficulties that can affect your success.  Students often have external factors such as family issues, illness, work, or extra-curricular commitments that can be a stumbling block. Whether you experience exam anxiety, need help with time management, are searching for a tutor for a class, or have an unexpected illness or family emergency, we are here to help. There are several services and resources on campus to help you achieve your goals.

Access Resource Centre

The Access Resource Centre (ARC) is committed to providing access and reasonable accommodations for academically qualified persons so that, whenever possible, such persons may be included in all aspects of the University experience. Services include assessment of needs, assistive technology, funding and grant information, and supporting student accessibility in classrooms.

On Academic Probation?

Academic Probation occurs when your Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) falls below 2.00 at the end of a semester.   Watch the video below to learn more about Academic Probation.

Note: All coursework completed at another institution will not be calculated into your UNBC CGPA; therefore, the course will not improve your academic standing.  You will receive the approved transfer credit for the course but it will not change your UNBC CGPA.

If a student continues on Academic Probation for more than 30 credit hours, they may be Required to Withdraw from the university for a period of time. If you are required to withdraw, please see your Student Advisor as soon as possible for information. We are here to help.
