The Athletic Cohort Advising Model was developed to increase success, retention, and graduation rates among athletes. Each athletic group is assigned an academic advisor who will work with them from admissions to graduation. The academic advisor works closely with admissions, financial aid, student life, scholarship office, athletic coaching staff, and faculty. The advising model includes grade/attendance checks, advising check-ins, completion of a career inventory, declared pathway, and transfer information. The objectives include students will declare a pathway major during the first semester of attendance, students will earn 24-30 hours of credit during first year, students will be informed on career pathway regarding education, salary, and job expectancy, and students will earn a degree within 5 semesters.
