Academic Monitoring- Early Warning System

SSS advisors will monitor the academic progress of all students in the program. They will also provide intensive advisement to help students successfully persist in their programs of study.

Each fall and spring semester, Progress Reports are sent out on behalf of all TRIO students. These reports serve as early warnings for students who might need support. Faculty will provide an update on student performance as of the first test, exam, quiz, or homework assignment. Students with less than a “C” in any course are advised to meet with their Advisor to discuss a plan to improve their course grade prior to the semester mid-point.
