Athletic Academic Advising Staff
Student-athletes have more demands, stricter requirements and more complex schedules than non-athletes. To help meet those demands, each student-athlete has access to an academic advisor. Academic Advisors perform a variety of functions which include:
The primary goal of the tutorial program is to provide student-athletes with academic assistance beyond what they receive in the classroom. Tutor appointments may be scheduled through the academic advising staff. Tutors are also available during night time Study Hall in certain subjects and may be utilized on a walk-in basis. All student-athletes have access to tutors on any subject matter.
The purpose of an Academic Mentor is to provide individualized and/or small group academic support and assistance for student-athletes, assisting them in their transition to the University, developing their study skills and habits, fostering an understanding of learning and motivation, and helping them to develop academic literacy skills. These duties include:
Study Hall is open to student-athletes Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 10 p.m.; Sundays from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Students are checked for attendance and are monitored for productivity.
