With October comes midterm, and midterm grades were posted for all first-year students on Monday, October 17. In order to support first-year students, the Waino Wahtera Center for Student Success provides outreach to students who received more than one “UN” (unsatisfactory) midterm grade. Academic Advisors also receive midterm grade reports and are encouraged to contact students they think are struggling. While only first-year students receive midterm grades, midterm is a great time for all students to evaluate what they have been doing and make changes as needed.
If you think your student may benefit from additional support, encourage them to take advantage of some of the academic resources available to them on campus. The Learning Centers provide coaches to help students understand subject material, and coaches are students themselves. Many centers offer individual tutoring or team-style learning sessions, they are free to students and a great support for their success. There are other academic support services available to students through the Waino Wahtera Center for Student Success, Counseling Services, and Student Disability Services.
