Initiatives/Programs

The Office of Student Success coordinates a number of programs and initiatives, many of which are listed below.  Please feel free to contact us for more information on these and future planned efforts.

Welcome Weekend and New Student Move-In

Program held in August each year, intended for new incoming students; includes new student move-in and Convocation

Grade Monitoring and Early Alerts

Monitors grades and alerts students who receive warning grades at the 4-week and/or Mid-term points; introduces strategies for improvement; notifies students of final grades release

Returning Student Registration Campaign

Incentivizes timely registration for current students each semester: special registration days; on-campus promotion/reminders; etc.

Withdrawal/Exit Surveys

Office proposed and drafted the institutional exit survey in order to collect data and learn more about who leaves the University and why.  Development of the survey prompted a course withdrawal survey.  Data attained in both instances informs new initiatives and efforts.

Mid-Year Institute

An online e-course for all students who are on probation at end of each term (or who have suspension appeal approved)

Coaching/counseling sessions

Staff meet with at-risk students and/or their families to work through issues that challenge student success

Family Weekend Event

Falcon Family Association

Now with just under 2,000 members, the Fairmont State University Association exists to provide parents and family members a way to partner with the institution for their student's success.  Newsletters and other communications are just a few of the perks FREE membership affords those involved.
