Office of Academic Excellence

The Office of Academic Excellence (OAE) provides academic leadership and services to faculty and students in their pursuit of academic excellence. A key function of OAE is student academic advising by a faculty advisor performed when a student’s academic progress status is identified as Warning, Probation, or at risk of Dismissal. The support services offered through OAE include:

  • Technical support
  • Providing academic advising for students
  • Directing or coordinating Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) advising for students identified at risk of not completing a program
  • Serving student needs for tutoring, study skills, scholarly writing, orientation to an academic program, and similar supports in both individual and group settings
  • Facilitating workshops and events that promote or support academic excellence
  • Collaborating or conferring with other offices of the College, especially the Department Chairs and the Director of Training and Development, to include functions supporting student orientations and facilitating transfer credit evaluations
  • Coordinating Disability Support Services (DSS) for faculty and students.
