WHAT IS ACCESS?
ACCESS is a program designed to assist students with achieving and maintaining the 2.0 GPA requirement to live in the residence halls. Participation in ACCESS is mandatory for all residents that have not met this requirement. Through this program, we will support our residential students by providing them with the resources needed to help them succeed academically.
1. Improve student performance.
2. Increase student retention.
3. Promote personal and academic growth.
4. Help students discover a specific career path.
5. Help students set specific short/long term goals and develop a plan to achieve their goals.
ACCESS: HOW IT WORKS
Students participating in the program are expected to meet with their individual ACCESS Coach several times during each semester. These meetings will provide students the opportunity to determine the necessary resources, such as tutoring, writing center, etc. that would assist them in improving their grades. The Coaches will act as mentors and provide the students with support and feedback during the program.
Residents will show a commitment to his/her own success by attending all meetings, workshops, and tutoring/reinforcement sessions set forth in the action plan that will be created with the assistance of the Residence Hall Director. Residents will meet with Residence Hall Directors and academic advisors at least four times during the semester (twice individually and twice with their cohort)
Residents will maintain a record of all workshops and meetings with CAS staff, academic advisors, etc that they have attended throughout the semester.
