Completing the Sixth College Academic Assessment and Reflection Process

What is the Sixth College Academic Assessment and Reflection Process?

The Sixth College Academic Reflection Process is intended to help you and advisors assess your academic progress and help you build an academic success plan that addresses academic difficulties that you may be facing.

How do I complete an Academic Reflection Appointment?

To facilitate a productive discussion, you must:

  • Schedule an Academic Reflection appointment. To schedule, contact Sixth College Academic Advising using the Virtual Advising Center (VAC):
    • Review available appointment times on our Advising Calendar 
    • Submit a VAC message (using Ask a Question) and include the following information:
      • Mention that you are requesting an Academic Reflection appointment
      • Provide at least three possible dates and times for your appointment 
      • Provide your cell phone number and your cell service provider (ex: Verizon, T-Mobile, etc.)

You must schedule an appointment; Academic Reflection cannot be completed during drop-in advising.

  • Prior to your appointment, complete the Sixth College Academic Assessment and Reflection which includes:
    • Completing a self-assessment
    • Reviewing your progress in major-related courses
    • Reflecting on your recent academic difficulty (about 500 words)
    • Drafting a three-quarter academic plan with academic departments

Be prepared to spend at least 25 minutes on the reflection and 45 minutes to complete the appointment. 

During your appointment we will help you address factors that may be affecting your academic performance, can assist with identifying adjustments to help you find academic success, and will set goals for future academic success.

Hold Policy

If a hold has been placed on your account, it will not be removed until you have completed your appointment. Be aware that all University drop deadlines are strictly enforced and it is your responsibility to contact the college in a timely manner to comply with these deadlines.
