The Office of Student Success provides strategies for students to fulfill their degree through the timely delivery of interventions and resources. Information is delivered to students through workshops, Student Success Blackboard Organization, e-mail, and individual appointment.
Students should seek the assistance of a student success specialist to:
- navigate the university’s offices, policies, and procedures, including course registration, academic course placements, how to use Self-Service for course registration, financial aid, and student accounts;
- prepare and plan courses for degree completion in conjunction with faculty advisors;
- understand how to study, their learning style, time management, the course syllabus, and how to manage and complete course assignments, presentations, and research papers; and
- connect to other resources, such as the Writing Center, peer tutoring, the math lounge, reference librarians, the Office of Information Technology, and academic advising.
The Office of Student Success manages the university Academic Early Warning System and the Student Advocacy Team. Undergraduate students placed on academic probation are coached by university staff coordinated through the Office of Student Success.
Additionally, the Office for Student Success identifies and provides students with the tools needed for optimum success. The office provides holistic support of the student through the Angel Fund and conducts outreach to students who are having the following challenges:
- difficulty navigating university processes and procedures,
- feeling overwhelmed by a family emergency,
- social adjustments/college transitions, and/or
- a decline in academic performance due to prolonged absence in the classroom.
