Intensive academic advising. Students will be scheduled to meet individually with professional advisors on a regular basis, with special attention given to spring semester registration.
Mentoring. Invested faculty and staff will
serve as mentors to our students and be committed to their success. Direct follow-up on the student’s
progress will take place weekly throughout the first
six weeks of classes.
Priority placement in other University programs.
Students will be guaranteed placement in
the Pathways Pre-Orientation Workshop and
have countless opportunities to have discounted
