Academic Intervention

Throughout the fall and spring semesters of the first year advisors provide academic intervention and assist with Early Alerts for those students who are identified as being academically at-risk.  Moreover, the advisor will also conduct campus-wide grade checks in order to evaluate progress and assess the student’s next semester schedule. 

Tutoring is a vital component to a student’s success. Many students who need academic intervention will find that tutoring is a great out-of-class resource. Tutoring is provided all over campus including:
