Academic Success Kit (ASK)

Students are placed on academic probation when their GPA is less than a 2.0. Students will receive an email and a letter in their Communication Center on the website informing them of their academic status. A hold is in effect which prevents registering for the next semester. To remove the hold, students must participate in a workshop that addresses self-reflection as the initial way to connect with the seriousness of being on probation.

Onsite workshops are available at the beginning of a semester; students are encouraged to attend these so as not to miss their first available registration date. Contact us at 775-673-7060 to schedule your workshop.

Program components include: communication about being on probation, a holistic intervention designed to assess reasons for being on probation, mid-term progress reports, and follow-up services. The ASK program integrates cross-departmental collaboration by including various aspects of student services and academic areas.

If students do not take the onsite (in-person) workshops, then an online workshop will be posted and available after registration has begun for the following semester.


Early Alert/Progress Report Program

Early Alert/ Progress Reports are notices your instructor submits when there is a concern about your performance in class. Early Alert/ Progress Reports may identify frequent absences, missed assignments or exams, or failure in a class. Students who receive Early Alerts/Progress reports will receive a letter in their communications center found in their MyTMCC student center.

For more information, visit the Early Alert Web page.


N-RAP (Nevada's Recovery and Prevention Community)

Universities across the country have recently discovered the value of collegiate recovery communities. Building on this national trend, N-RAP, a project of the Center for the Application of Substance Abuse Technologies (CASAT), is designed to provide an environment of nurturing support and peer connections for students recover­ing from substance and behavioral addictions and students choosing a substance-free lifestyle.

The college experience is full of transitions and opportunities. This transition can be particularly overwhelming for a student choosing to live a sober life within a peer culture often viewed as substance-friendly. Nevada’s Re­covery and Prevention Communities utilize existing resources to enhance opportunities for students recovering from substance and behavioral addictions to remain connected to their peers while meeting their desired goal of healthy living. Through these efforts, N-RAP hopes to influence expectations, encourage recovery, and inspire changes in university students’ drinking behaviors.

Funded by the Stacie Mathewson Foundation, N-RAP augments other efforts by CASAT to educate and enhance the behavioral healthcare work­force while decreasing stigma about addiction and its impact on the individual, their family and friends, and the community.

N-RAP at TMCC

TMCC is currently holding all of N-RAP events and meetings in RDMT 325 J, located inside the Counseling and Career Services Office. For more information, please contact us.
