Welcome students!  Do you know the real facts about going to college?

  • Fact: College is more than just time in the classroom.  It’s about clubs, housing, financial aid, your degree path, and everything in between.
  • Fact: There are many benefits to being involved outside of your classes, such as developing leadership skills, exploring networking opportunities, increasing diversity awareness, and preparing for your professional career.
  • Fact: Studies show that having a place where you can make a connection to your campus resources will increase your ability to succeed in your college experience.

Your Roadmap to Being a Successful Student

The adjustment to college can be difficult for any student regardless if you have a 4.0 or a 1.0 GPA.  At times, academic performance can be tough but we at Bloomfield College want to ensure that you stay on top of your grades!  Whether you are a new student, current student, adult, or transfer, the Office of Student Success is here to assist you. 

Academic Probation

All first-time freshmen who receive a 1.7 GPA or below are placed on academic probation.  All continuing and transfer students who receive under a 2.0 are placed on academic probation.  The Office of Success wants to ensure that you stay on top of your school work.  A poor GPA can lead to other forms of academic probation, suspension, or dismissal from the College.  It also can hurt the chances for entering postgraduate school in the future such as graduate school, medical or law school.

Academic and Attendance Alerts

If you are placed on academic probation or show signs of a decline in your grades or class attendance, the Office of Student Success will request that you come to meet with a counselor to create a plan that gets you back on track.  There are many support services and resources at Bloomfield College that can assist students and the Office of Student Success wants to make sure that you have the knowledge to take advantage of any or all of the services that are designed to help students succeed in their college years.
