Offer a mandatory academic intervention workshop for all students issued either an academic warning or placed on academic probation
Three major activities supported Intrusive Academic Advising this past year. They are: (1) Advising with Targeted Tier Populations, (2) Encouragement to enroll in 15 semester credit hours, and (3) the Educational Advisory Board’s Student Success Collaborative (EAB-SSC) pilot project, which was designed to precede the campus-wide implementation of the new advising platform that will begin in Fall 2015.
The STEPS initiative began in fall 2012 as a collaboration between Academic Affairs, Academic Support Services, and Residential Life as an effort to increase the persistence and retention of residential students.
Piloted in spring 2014 and in full operation summer 2014, the Near Completer strategy identified students who have “stopped out” within 15 semester credit hours of earning an associate degree at SGSC.
Intrusive advising and graduation coaching for students with 90 or more earned credit hours.
Two academic advising tools were instituted: (1) MyDegree (DegreeWorks) and (2) Student Advising Alert System (SAAS) an EAB product.
