The purpose of the At-Risk
Intrusive Advising Program is to determine those students
who are “at-risk” of academic failure based on specific defining
criteria, and to facilitate their college success by strengthening
their areas of weakness through intrusive advising techniques
(questionnaires, surveys, interaction, tracking, and monitoring) and
collaborative efforts between Career & Advising Services, academic
advisors, and other campus resources in a concentrated effort to
invest in our students.
