Reduce the number of students on academic probation and move them to timely degree completion
Two academic advising tools were instituted: (1) MyDegree (DegreeWorks) and (2) Student Advising Alert System (SAAS) an EAB product.
Using Campus Labs technology in order to implement Beacon. Beacon is a type of early warning software to address academic integration. We are also employing Strategy 4.3 (use Degree Works to track student progress).
Increased required intrusive advising for any student identified as at risk for retention and progression using required meetings, mandatory supplemental instruction, and automatic referrals to Academic Success Center resources
The college developed a proactive advising program known as the Performance Alert for Student Success or PASS, which provided early and ongoing updates to students who may be in danger of failing or of performing poorly in a class.
Provide a range of academic support services to remove obstacles and provide clear pathways to college completion. Increase student usage of tutoring and academic advising services in the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE). Extend ACE office hours. Refine the Early Warning System and integrate it into the academic services of the ACE. Utilize intrusive advising techniques, with assistance from course instructors, to assist students.
Establish criteria for identifying students who may need special interventions in the semester. Make use of Early Alert, Degree Works, and other tools
