Using the Academic Success Plan with your Advisees

The Academic Advising Council is holding Advisor Information Sessions to assist faculty in advising students who have been admitted with the provision of enhanced advising. One piece of enhanced advising is to develolp an Academic Success Plan with first-year advisees. The 30 minute information sessions are scheduled on various dates and times and will be held at several different locations. These sessions are intended for participants to leave with a basic understanding of the first-year admission standards, the process students go through from admission to the removal of provision status, and how the Academic Success Plan booklet can be used in advising sessions. Ideally, these sessions will be small, allowing for more discussion and sharing of ideas. If you are advising students in your department who have been admitted with provsion, please plan to attend one of the following sessions!
