On Tuesday and Thursday of each week, all students will report to their Academic Advisor. This staff member reviews the students’ current academic status. The Advisor helps students organize and manage their learning, makes suggestions of academic strategies and interventions, and provides motivation and encouragement. Students who are not passing all of their classes will receive a 20 minute period of time to address these issues. Students who are passing all of their classes will receive a 20 minute break. Students on break must comply with all break rules and expectations. Students who are not passing all of their classes MUST remain with their Advisor and comply with all study session expectations.
