Mandatory Study Program (M.S.P.)

The Mandatory Study Program is designed for all freshmen with a cumulative GPA of 1.5 or below for the fall semester.

Students attend a mandatory one-on-one, thirty minute appointment each week. Tutors tailor these sessions to each student according to the student's strengths and weaknesses. Tutors focus on basic learning skills such as note taking, textbook reading, test taking, time management, stress management, and organization.  Students are also required to attend MSP study halls. These study halls are uninterrupted time for the students to work on current papers, projects, and reading assignments. Students are encouraged to attend Subject Area Tutoring sessions, Supplemental Instruction sessions, Math Lab and Writing Lab sessions as needed.
