Bounce Back provides students whose institutional grade point average (GPA) has fallen below a 2.0 with support, information, and resources to improve their GPA and achieve good academic standing at Weber State University. Students are required to complete Bounce Back each time their academic standing drops from good to warning, warning to probation, or probation to suspension. Students who do not complete the Bounce Back program requirements receive a hold preventing future course registration.
First-time participants are enrolled in a Canvas course called Bounce Back Workshop. Access the workshop by following the steps below.
- Log in to eWeber
- Find and open the WSU Online - Canvas app
- On your Dashboard, click on the Bounce Back Workshop course
The workshop takes approximately 1.5-2 hours to complete. As part of the workshop, you will submit several short reflections, quizzes, and an academic plan for review by your college/Student Success Center academic advisor. Be aware that it may be several days before your advisor can review your workshop submissions, especially during peak registration periods and right before the semester begins. We recommend completing the workshop early to avoid delays in your ability to register.
If you are new to Canvas, it may be helpful to review the Canvas Student Guide.
Return participants are required to meet with their college/Student Success Center academic advisor. Schedule a Bounce Back appointment using the contact information provided in the Bounce Back program notification email sent to your Wildcat email.
