I am a UC Davis student who was recently dismissed due to academic reason and now they are telling me that I can not return for 3 whole quarters so that would be in next June to make up my classes and maybe able about to return to school then. I am not sure what my options are and would like it if people can help me out here. I am going to explain fully what happened and maybe someone out there has a way to get me out of this mess.
So I am a transfer student from a community college who stated to attend UC Davis in Fall 2010. Thing were ok Fall quarter and I ended up with a 2.33. Near the end of Fall and beginning of Winter I stated to go though problems such as depression and anxiety. I had put off my mental issues thinking I was just the issues of being away from home and I thought it would just pass but it became a lot worst down the line. So I was just unable to focus on school and my grades began to slip to 1.73 Winter quarter and I was put on academic probation. At the end of Spring i ended up with a 1.41 and they told me to make up classes in the summer to be able to stay at UC Davis and summer was a complete disaster with school and my mental issues. I finally began to see someone for my issues but UC Davis told me I was dismissed wont be able to return to school until next summer session which is June 2012.
After seeing a therapist for a while now its come to my attention that most of my issues are family caused and I cant do anything about but take care of my life and finish school. I am ready to move on now and would like to piece my life back together and really have another shot to finish school.
Well I have talked to the counselors a bunch of times to figure what I can do but they are not give me a right answer. So what are my options from people's experiences about my situation? Is there a option to transfer to another school with a bad academic standing?
