ON-TRACK

The On-Track Academic Success Program is aimed at increasing at-risk students’ academic and personal success. On-Track accomplishes this through refining student’s study skills, self management skills, and knowledge of campus resources and by facilitating the formation of stronger relationships with professors, classmates, and other sources of support. Participants engage in the program through seminars, one-on-one meetings, and supplemental activities tailored to a student's specific needs.

LASSI

The LASSI is a 10-scale, 80-item assessment of students' awareness about and use of learning and study strategies related to skill, will and self-regulation components of strategic learning. The focus is on both covert and overt thoughts, behaviors, attitudes and beliefs that relate to successful learning and that can be altered through educational interventions. Research has repeatedly demonstrated that these factors contribute significantly to success in college and that they can be learned or enhanced through educational interventions such as learning and study skills courses.
