Summary:

Revising the letter sent to college students to place them on academic probation to mitigate shame and stigma students perceived—by framing probation as a process not a label, communicating “you’re not the only one,” acknowledging specific, valid reasons students can struggle in college, and offering hope for returning to good standing—increased the percentage of students who returned to good standing a year later from 26% to 43% and the percentage who were still enrolled (had not dropped out or been suspended) from 48% to 79%.
