Academic Success Plans (ASPs) exist for students who are interested in improving their academic performance in one or more areas. The original program was designed as an Academic Improvement Plan (AIP), and was intended to help exploratory students who found themselves on academic warning or probation. Since 2012, the program has expanded to help students from various colleges and with GPAs above a 2.0
Florida International University (FIU) is currently the fourth largest higher education institution in the country. Amidst a growing student population and an aggressive expansion in curriculum, a student can feel overwhelmed by the demands of such a competitive university. A student can also experience an array of academic and lifestyle transitions during his/her first year of college. Many FIU students have to work in order to afford the expenses of an undergraduate program. Others become actively engaged in FIU’s social culture. Although each student’s college experience is different, they must all balance their lives with their academics.
The Center for Academic Success, Academic Advising, and University Libraries have come together to create a holistic program for students who may have concerns with balancing their academic performance with their life responsibilities. Each program is individual to the student, which is how small learning communities can be created at such a large institution like FIU.The ASP is comprised of the following components:
The Academic Success Plan was piloted in the spring semester of 2012. The program worked with a total of 52 exploratory students who were either on academic warning or academic probation. Over 90% of students via Qualtrics survey responded positively to the AIP, and felt the program was beneficial for students who were struggling.
The program was offered to students in the Robert Stempel College of Public Health & Social Work in the spring semester of 2014. All the students who volunteered to complete the program significantly improved their GPAs.Who is involved in the Academic Success Plan (ASP)?
