The “Advising Student-Athletes” seminar will provide the framework to assist academic advisors in both two- and four-year institutions in creating academic plans that focus on student success and persistence to graduation while addressing NCAA legislation.
The faculty will lead participants through discussions that focus on the principles involved in academic advising for student success, NCAA Academic Standards for new, transfer and continuing students and other topics, such as:
- Initial and Continuing Eligibility
- 2-4 Transfer Legislation
- Academic Misconduct
- D-II Path to Graduation
- ... and other various hot topics
The seminar will consist of both presentations and small group activities that will focus on the seminar content and give participants the opportunity to develop a model that is both student-athlete and institution specific. Within the small groups, case studies will be used to work through various scenarios as related to student athletes, their advisors, and NCAA regulations. Additionally, we will host a Q&A Time with a NCAA Representative.
Academic advisors from both 2 and 4 year institutions will benefit from this seminar.
- All advisors will consider the various factors related to student athletes and their success and will understand how to collaborate with various campus units and resources to mitigate the at-risk factors.
- Two-year college advisors will understand how to help prepare the student-athlete for transfer to a 4 year institution and position them for academic success and persistence towards a baccalaureate degree.
- Academic advisors from 4 year institutions will understand first-year, transfer, and continuing student-athlete success and persistence while integrating both institutional and NCAA academic requirements.
