Academic Success Program

What would you put in a personalized toolkit for college success?

Our Academic Success Program can help you sharpen skills, work through personal struggles, support you with tutoring and workshops, and even line up a job. (see ASP brochure)

As an ASP student, you will have access to the following special opportunities:

Summer Academy : Earn 3 credits while sharpening your Reading , Writing and Math skills, meeting other students and getting a head start in college. Summer Academy is an intensive, three-week program for entering freshman which includes classroom instruction, workshops, group projects and field trips!

Academic Monitoring and Counseling: In addition to working with your freshmen advisors, you will have access to academic counseling where we strive to address your individual concerns as they impact your academic progress. We also monitor your academic progress by liaising with your professors and the Dean’s Office.

Workshops and Events: The ASP offers you educational workshops and inspiring service learning projects throughout the year geared to develop your full potential. Some of our successful events have included: Preparing for Math finals, Snack-n-Study sessions, Evening tutoring, Community Service Learning projects (visit to the Elizabeth Immigration Detention Center), workshops on Good Decision-Making Skills and How to improve your GPA, and the DISCOVER program- to choose a major/career.

Evening Study Sessions: Partnering with Residence Life, the ASP offers peer tutoring in the dorms at night. We also work closely with the campus tutoring center and can provide individual tutoring on an as needed basis.

Connections to other campus resources: Benefit from the collaboration that the ASP has with other campus programs, organizations, departments and students enabling you to feel connected to the network of services and programs that the University has to offer.

Work-Study: During the semester, students can apply to become part of the ASP work-study team. A small group of students is selected and trained to assist with various ASP projects and events and serve as peer leaders for the new incoming class.
