Absent Professor Program

Project Success: Early Alert Program

Every fall and spring semester the Student Success Center initiates Project Success. During the first 10 weeks of the semester, this program provides early intervention and academic coaching to students who have been referred by an instructor as having difficulty in a particular class. Students work one-on-one with a professional academic coach on issues such as learning style assessment, time management, and study skills.

Please refer students who exhibit the following academic difficulties:

Excessive absences within the first four weeks of the semester
Fail to turn in assignments
Fail (or miss) an exam
Ask where they can receive academic assistance
Once we receive the referral we will contact the student to provide academic support and assistance. When a referred student meets with an academic coach, a status update will be emailed to the instructor within the week.

Referral Deadline: Referrals need to be made by March 13, 2013. After this date no more referrals will be accepted online. If instructors are concerned about a student after March 13th, they should encourage the student to come meet with an academic coach.
