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.

Academic Coaching

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.

This is the official catalog for the 2016-2017 academic year. This catalog serves as a contract between a student and Bradley University. Should changes in a program of study become necessary prior to the next academic year every effort will be made to keep students advised of any such changes via the Dean of the College or Chair of the Department concerned, the Registrar's Office, u.Achieve degree audit system, and the Schedule of Classes. It is the responsibility of each student to be aware of the current program and graduation requirements for particular degree programs.
