A referral can be made for an Academic Success Plan (ASP) by any academic advisor, faculty member, or staff member from across the university. While the focus of ASP is on students within the College of Arts, Sciences, and Education (CASE), students from other colleges and programs can also be referred.
Rather than wait until a student's GPA falls below a 2.5, proactive measures can be taken by contacting the CfAS Academic Coach or CfAS Director about activating an ASP before or during the start of term. Students can get to know the program, and through discussion decide whether a routine tutoring program would be beneficial.
While the ASP is not required, it can be used as a motivator to increase communication between students, advisors, and faculty. In specific circumstances programs have placed holds on students' accounts until they have activated an ASP to contribute to their student success. Students can choose to activate an ASP for one semester or for additional semesters until graduation.
