What is "Academic Planning"?
Academic Planning begins with a sort of "academic diagnostic"—what is going on for you as a student on and off campus, how is it effecting your academics, and what do you need to be a more successful student. It involves an Academic Support staff member making a plan with you, outlining the "to-do" items for a successful semester or other defined period of time: what resources you should access, what support you need from different offices on campus, how and when to access that support, and how can Academic Support staff work with you to develop the necessary skills to keep you working toward academic success.
How will Academic Plans be documented?
All academic plans from these meetings will be documented in Momentum under "Success Plans." Advisors and Student Success staff, in addition to you as a student, will have access to your plan, which will be updated across a semester and adjusted, as needed by staff in Academic Support. This allows everyone to work together as a team to support you in achieving your goals and shows the hard work you are putting into your own success.
Who should use Academic Planning?
If you are facing transitions or challenges that are new to you or have been a regular part of your academic career, you are great candidates for Academic Planning. Faculty can refer students, too, when they need another voice or perspective in the conversation, are not sure what supports to advise, or know that a student is facing a particular challenge.
