Northwest Missouri State University

Message from the Provost

Dr. Jamie Hooyman


As a student on academic probation, you are at a critical crossroads in your academic journey, and you need to be intentional and thoughtful about getting your academic career back on track.

At Northwest, my colleagues and I are committed to helping you achieve your academic goals and complete your college degree.

Academic probation is an enrollment status based upon the grades you have earned. You are eligible to continue your enrollment at Northwest, but there are conditions associated with your continued enrollment. Northwest’s Academic Recovery plan is designed to help you make informed decisions, access resources and learn new success strategies so you can achieve your academic goals.

Please take advantage of the trimester break to reflect upon this past term and take action toward your future. You have learned a great deal in just a few short months — and much of that learning is about you. Take that new knowledge into consideration. While it may be tempting to dwell upon what did not go well, it is also very important to consider what did because you can draw on those strengths as you move forward. 

This academic recovery website provides information that can help you begin to make a plan. Each page has information that is specific to students on academic probation. Contact information for professionals who can help with additional questions is also provided. I encourage you to spend time on the site to understand more about what academic probation means for you, and the resources available as you create a plan to succeed.

As a condition of your continued enrollment, you are required per university policy, to enroll in and complete two one-credit hour courses in the next term of enrollment. These courses will help you develop learning strategies to be successful as you continue your educational journey:

If you have already enrolled in courses for the next trimester, the university will add these courses to your schedule. If you have not enrolled for the upcoming trimester, but plan to do so, please contact the office of Advisement Assistance at 660.562.1695.

My colleagues and I believe that you, working in partnership with Northwest’s many support systems, will be successful in improving academically.

In the name of student success -- every student, every day -- I wish you well!

Dr. Jamie Hooyman

Interim Provost
