Bulldog Rebound

Bulldog Rebound was created by the Office of the Provost and the Center for Academic Excellence at Mississippi State University to provide academic assistance to those students who have been placed on academic suspension. This program is offered to suspended students who petition to stay in school and improve their academic performance. It provides an alternative to the university policy which traditionally has required suspended students to stay out of school for one academic semester.  


Bulldog Rebound at Mississippi State University is structured to provide students with enhanced advising and study skills to facilitate better academic habits and increase performance and success in college. As participants in Bulldog Rebound, students must fulfill the following four main obligations:

  1. meet with the Bulldog Rebound coordinator in the Center for Academic Excellence three times a semester;
  2. meet with their academic advisors twice a semester;
  3. complete the specified section of LSK 1033: Fundamentals of Achievement (3-credit hour) course; and
  4. maintain a 2.0 GPA or higher for the semester in which they are enrolled in the program in compliance with AOP 12.16.

Bulldog Rebound (previously known as the Learning Skills Support Program) began in fall 2005.
