Academic Probation Works Against Men

Male college students, especially those who had done well in their high-school classes, are much more likely than females to drop out when placed on academic probation after their first year in school, according to a researcher now at the University of Oregon. College students who bounce back from academic probation subsequently do improve their grades and improve their graduation prospects, the study found. Jason M. Lindo of the University of Oregon briefly discusses his study of the impacts of academic probation on college students. Credit: University of Oregon
