Academic Probation? How to save my scholarship?
Okay so I was going through a lot of mental health issues in my first semester of college and it led to my grades dropping severely and I had to switch my major as well. The school knows about it, but they are getting all of my medical info about it in the spring. I have a W in one class and I think I failed two others. I know I know, its bad. I got an A in one class and I don't know what I got in another, a B or C. I have to take four classes instead of five next semester. I am going to retake pre-calc and I already know a lot of it now and I feel I can get an A. My other classes I feel I can do well in as well. But is there any way to save my scholarship after this? I need a 3.0? Do you think there is a way that if I get really good grades the next semester, they may give me another chance? I also visit the school psychologist and plan on going to the psychiatrist. I also have a letter from my doctor that lets me take my test in a specific area due to me often having panic attacks during tests. My friend has severe mental illness and apparently only needs a 1.5 GPA to keep her scholarship. I don't know what to do.
