Student Success Program

The Student Success (SS) program is one of many programs North Georgia offers in support of students' academic success. Intended for students with less than 60 credit hours (i.e., freshmen and sophomores), the program is designed to support students in making the transition to college by providing them with assistance in taking positive steps toward achieving academic success.

There are two means of becoming a participant in the program. One, if an instructor detects students are having academic difficulty, the instructor may refer them to the Student Success program. Two, automatic referral based on progress report grades at mid term. Six core courses that historically have proven to be difficult courses for students are monitored for non-passing grades. Once referrals are generated, students are assigned to a SS program advisor. These advisors are committed to the student's success. They will connect students with appropriate campus resources and assist them in the development of an academic success plan. Students are notified of participation in the program via North Georgia email and student response is required within three days of the notification. It is the expectation of faculty and administrators that students read their North Georgia email regularly and follow instructions promptly.
