The STAR Program
STAR (Students Taking Academic Responsibility) is an academic success
program for University College students on first-time probation or
first-time reinstatement after a previous dismissal.
The program provides volunteer professional staff, student mentors, and
academic coaches from across campus who guide and support STAR students by
helping them set realistic and attainable academic and personal goals,
recommend campus resources, and address other needs or concerns as they
STAR students meet with their coach or mentor 4-5 times a semester for 30
minute sessions. Ideally, you will meet once in September, twice in October,
once in November, and once in December. As noted in the academic probation
policy and the reinstatement contract for University College students,
participation in STAR or another program such as the Diversity Enrichment
and Achievement Program (DEAP), 21st Century Scholars Success Program, or
Student Support Services (SSS) is mandatory.
