Provisional and Conditional Students

Provisional Admission

An academic enrichment program that provides students with access to individualized academic advising, peer-facilitated support and other services that focus on academic success throughout the first year of college. Provisionally accepted students will participate in the Eagle Success Program with the option of participation in the Success Academy.

Conditional Admission

Students in this category are strongly encouraged to participate in the Success Academy in the summer. Successful completion of Success Academy (GPA of 2.70 or higher) will allow students to participate in the Eagle Success Program.

Eagle Success Program

The Eagle Success Program (ESP) is designed to offer students a wide variety of services and resources to help ensure academic success. The components of the ESP include free tutoring, one-on-one personalized advising and peer coach interactions. When possible, students will be placed in enhanced First Year Seminar courses that include additional orientation and success-focused opportunities. 

Conditionally and provisionally admitted students are assigned to academic advisors in the Office of Academic Advising and Retention. These advisors will monitor and direct academic activities in collaboration with the student while connecting the student to various levels of support across campus. Conditionally and provisionally admitted students work with their advisor(s) to design a plan of remediation in college readiness courses designed to increase competency in identified areas of need (an academic plan). Credits earned from college readiness courses do not count toward program or general education requirements, and they do not count toward the minimum hours required for graduation. However, college readiness courses do carry credit, which is counted in the semester workload, and the grades earned for developmental courses are computed in the student's GPA.

To successfully exit the Eagle Success Program and enroll in a degree program at the University, a student must:

  1. Complete all required placement testing.
  2. Complete any and all required college readiness courses and FYS 101 with a grade of "C" or higher.
  3. Successfully complete two semesters with a cumulative GPA of 2.0. However, early exit is possible after the first semester. 
  4. Successfully complete at least 24 semester hours, 12 of which must meet general education requirements.
  5. Meet with the assigned peer coach.
  6. Attend a minimum of five hours of documented study tables per week at an approved tutoring location.
  7. Meet with an assigned academic advisor each semester in the Office of Academic Advising and Retention, once before mid-term and once after mid-term.
  8. Complete a career assessment with the Office of Career Services if deemed necessary by the advisor.
  9. Depending upon the admission status, some students may be required to participate in the Success Academy during the summer. All students in the Eagle Success Program are strongly encouraged to participate in this academic enrichment program.

Students in the Eagle Success Program may not declare a major until all requirements have been satisfied. Failure to satisfy the requirements of the Eagle Success Program by the end of the freshman year may result a delay in declaring a major.
