Student -Athletes Making Progress towards Degree
This program was instituted in the fall of 2010 in an effort to assist student-athletes who are admitted to Missouri State University as an exception to our admissions policy. This is mandatory for all student-athletes who are admitted through admissions alternatives. The program is designed to assist student-athletes with the transition from high school to college. The program will cover the first year of the student-athletes academic career. Once a week, 1 hour meetings will be conducted to include the following components.
First Year experience
Tutoring/Objective Based Study Hall
The program is modeled after student development theory that suggests that students that are more connected to their campuses are more likely to be retained and graduate. The Achievement Center staff will incorporate study strategies, objective based study hall, tutoring, note taking strategies, and mandatory meetings with the Math lab, and the writing Center on campus to ensure improvement in their academic skills.
This is an excellent opportunity for student-athletes to focus in on their individual goals, and learn from those who have been successful at Missouri State University.
