The Academic Success Plan is a student’s blueprint for improving academic performance at Fayetteville State University. You will prepare this in consultation with your Student Success advisees – any advisee with a cumulative GPA below 2.0. The Academic Success Plan has several components that together create a path to success.
Shortly after the end of Drop/Add, you will receive an e-mail with a link to a Student Success Advisor survey. This survey will have a “course” ADVG 102, Student Success Advising, with a “section” consisting of any of your advisees with a cumulative GPA below 2.0 as of the beginning of the semester. You can click on the course to see your advisees and some information about them.
It is important that you and your advisee be able to contact each other. Please emphasize the importance to the student of checking FSU e-mail regularly. Try to get a current cell phone number. Make sure your advisee knows your office hours and contact information as well.
The Contract lists things students can do to improve their academic performance. You will discuss and agree to them with your advisee. There is flexibility to select the items that will best serve the student’s needs. You can add other items as well. The actions listed on the contract are as follows:
The Academic Success Plan is a contract between the student and her/his advisor. The student agrees to pursue the recommendations in the Success Plan, and the advisor agrees to provide access and advice as needed.
You will report on your Student Success students using Student Success Advisor Surveys, which will be sent via e-mail three times during the semester. They will be sent one week before the deadline for each meeting, and they will be available for two weeks. You can use the link to return to the survey during that period.
Instructors will report on meetings with students in their classes using a Student Success Instructor Survey that will be sent shortly before midterm.
At the end of the term, Student Success advisors will receive a final survey with one yes-or-no question: Has the student fulfilled the terms of the Academic Success Plan to your satisfaction?
Should Student Success students be placed on academic suspension after the end of the term, their fulfillment of the Academic Success Plan will be considered by the Academic Appeals Committee in deciding whether to approve reinstatement from suspension.
Information about the Student Success Program can be found on the Transfer and Advisement Center website. University College and the Transfer and Advisement Center are jointly responsible for the Student Success Program.
