Academic Support Programs

Academic Support Programs encourages and guides students in the development of learning skills and personal management strategies that lead to earning a Baylor degree.

All Baylor students are offered a comprehensive range of classes, services, and programs based on a variety of students needs and learning preferences, including tutoring, collaborative learning through a Supplemental Instruction (SI) program, mentoring, workshop instruction, academic counseling and advisement, as well as a graded study skills course.

The department also coordinates academic intervention for students referred by faculty for grade-related and class attendance issues and provides grade recovery resources for students on academic probation as well as targeted support for special populations.

Resources For Faculty
  • Academic Warnings - Reported during the sixth week of the semester to a student with low grades, missing tests or assignments, and/or irregular class attendance.
  • Referrals - Academic intervention early in the semester allows time and opportunity for students to reverse patterns of inadequate academic performance. The program enhances student success by providing academic services/resources to students about whom faculty have academic concerns.
