Grade Point Average (GPA)

When entering the first year of college, a lot of adjustment and transition will occur. Sometimes students do not realize the importance of time management and studying and unfortunately, their grades suffer. Talk to your student about expectations for the semester and the concept of managing their academic and social commitments. It is important to remember that it might take some students time to adjust to Arkansas’s rigorous academic demands. The Enhanced Learning Center provides assistance to all University of Arkansas students in meeting their academic goals and can be a vital resource if your student is having issues in a class.
