Academic Success Program

The Academic Success Program (ASP) is designed to help students achieve success in many ways. First, weekly ASP sessions provide additional classroom instruction taught by upper-class students (ASP Leaders) who help clarify material discussed in each of the first-year classes.   ASP sessions also involve skill-building exercises that will help students prepare for their exams.  Second, the Supplemental Success Program (SSP) provides workshops coordinated by the Associate Dean for Academic Affairs, the Assistant Dean for Students, professors, and ASP Leaders that help students build the skills they need to be successful in class, examinations, and other assignments. The goals of ASP are to provide an understanding of material delivered in class, effective study habits, and strategies that maximize the prospects for academic success.

If you have any questions about the program or would like to meet to discuss your personal academic needs, please contact Dean Rogan-Mehta by phone at 414.288.0636 or by email.

The Fall ASP sessions began on Monday, August 31, 2015.
