Monitoring Academic Progress
If you are facing potential academic challenges, the Monitoring Academic Progress (MAP) program is for you. You will participate in MAP if you are admitted directly into the program or if you are placed on academic probation. Together, we will work one-on-one to make sure you have the information, tools, and accountability that will contribute to a positive academic experience.
If you are admitted directly into the MAP program when you enroll at the University of Saint Francis, you will be required to meet weekly with a MAP advisor throughout your first semester. The weekly meetings are scheduled around your schedule as standing appointments (the same day and time every week).
The purpose of your MAP meetings is to help you stay on track first semester. You can expect to discuss classes as well as other things that are happening in your life that may impact your success as a student. MAP advisors will also get feedback throughout the semester from your instructors. Using self-reported information from you as well as feedback from your instructors, MAP advisors can help provide accountability on the road to academic success.
If you are required to participate in the program, you will receive your MAP advisor assignment in writing shortly before the start of the semester. When you begin meeting with your MAP advisor, you will be asked to sign a contract committing to follow the program’s established rules and responsibilities. You will be expected to attend a minimum of 75 percent of scheduled MAP meetings and to earn a term GPA of at least 2.0. Doing so will constitute successful completion of the program; however, you may elect to continue program participation beyond the required semester, subject to advisor availability.
Consequences for failure to follow through on program responsibilities range from continuing required MAP participation to academic suspension for one calendar year.
