AEP 115: Learning Enhancement Strategies Seminar
The Learning Enhancement Seminar (AEP 115) is for students who want to ensure they have the college-level study skills necessary to be successful at Bradley. Topics include self-regulation, time management, note taking, test taking, textbook reading, and goal setting.
Turning Point Retention Program
Many students experience some form of academic difficulty during their college career. At Bradley, students whose difficulty has resulted in academic probation are required to participate in the Turning Point Program (TPP). The Turning Point Program's mission is to assist first-time probation students as they work to regain good academic standing. program participants complete a self-assessment, meet with TPP staff, and create and accomplish a plan for the semester that may include the Learning Enhancement Strategies Seminar (AEP 115), weekly accountability meetings, or connections to other campus resources.
Students experiencing challenges that are causing academic difficulty (poor time management, test anxiety or inadequate test taking strategies, low reading comprehension, etc.) can meet with a CLA staff member to create a learning improvement plan.
