Especially for Student Athletes

There are groups of college students who by reason of their distinct characteristics face unique challenges in their quest to be academically successful. 

That which distinguishes a particular group may be due to:

  1. their time or method of entry to the university (i.e., incoming students, international students, or veteran students),
  2. an activity they participate in (athletes or students traveling internationally),
  3. a shared experience (students living in residence housing, honors college students)
  4. or a shared personal characteristic (students with a disability, or LGBT students).
