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.
  • MapWorks - The MAP-Works Transition Survey (online assessment) is designed to gather information from the students that will give indications about the resources students may need to utilize in order to successfully progress at Baylor University.
  • 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.
