The office of academic affairs for varsity athletics regularly monitors the academic progress and grades of all student-athletes. Athletic advisors are in contact with instructors through progress reports, phone calls and emails throughout the semester.
Progress reports are shared with student-athletes and coaches. The reports are designed to assess each student-athlete's academic performance and professors are asked to give feedback on class attendance, assignment completion and grades, and test/quiz scores. This information is used to identify problem areas and make recommendations for improvement.
In the event that a problem is discovered, the athletic advisor works with the student-athlete to develop strategies to address the problem. If necessary, the office of academic affairs for varsity athletics may consult with faculty and staff from various academic and administrative units to enhance the student-athlete’s academic experience.
