For Students

This section will assist you if you were placed on academic warning or probation. Be sure to contact your academic adviser with questions about your academic status.

Warning or Probation

If you have been placed on academic warning or probation, you must:

  1. Complete the online Academic Intervention Self-Assessment (AISA) available through AccessPlus.
  2. Meet with your academic adviser within the first 10 days of class this semester. Be prepared to discuss your completed Academic Intervention Self-Assessment with your adviser. You are required to meet with your academic adviser for several important reasons:
    • To evaluate your current class schedule and making changes if needed,
    • To identify obstacles from the previous semester that negatively impacted your academic success, and
    • To receive academic success strategies and other resources from your adviser

After visiting with your adviser, please feel free to use our online resources to aid in your semester plan. In addition, you are welcome to make an academic coaching appointment by calling the Academic Success Center at: 515-294-6624.

To Access the AISA

  1. Log into AccessPlus.
  2. Under 'Grades & Transcripts', you will find an 'Academic Intervention' link. 
  3. Review the message in AccessPlus.
  4. Click 'Continue' to be directed to the self-assessment system.

Note: A new window will open and provide secure access to complete the self-assessment. Common questions related to the AISA can be found here.

For Advisers

The role of the academic adviser is critical to the success of the Academic Intervention program. The Intervention Model is desiged in a three phase model of academic intervention for students on Academic Warning and Probation. Phase One involves a college intervention only. Phase two is the student services intervention. Phase three is the University-wide intervention with numerous offices working to contact their students who have not met with their academic adviser. Common questions related to the AISA can be found here.

Why is there an Academic Probation Policy?

The Academic Probation Policy was established to provide a comprehensive, unified policy that will meet the following objectives:

  • Identify and alert students who are not making satisfactory academic progress;
  • Assist students on academic probation to be successful by providing them with interventions at the earliest point possible;
  • Maintain the integrity of Iowa State University baccalaureate degrees;
  • Comply with requirements for financial aid disbursement;
  • Academically dismiss students who fail to make satisfactory academic progress in a timely manner;
  • Provide a second chance (reinstatement), thus giving students the opportunity to demonstrate change.

To Access the AISA

  1. Log into AccessPlus.
  2. Under the 'Faculty/Adviser' tab and Advising Services option, search for your student by using the name browse option. 
  3. Upon locating the student, click on 'Academic Intervention'
  4. Click 'Continue' to be directed to the self-assessment system.

Note: A new window will open and provide secure access to view and manage the self-assessments.
