Supplemental Academic Advising

Academic advising is an important part of your university career that can positively impact your progress toward degree completion. It is far more than simply planning a schedule each semester. It is the shared partnership between you and your advisor.

Our goal is to serve as the guiding link between your educational pursuits and the University's expectations, academic rigor, and campus life as you transition to and through the university. Advising sessions are highly individualized based on your needs.

Note: Students who do not meet with an advisor will have a hold placed on their account in Bronco Direct for the following semester. 

As part of the participant agreement, ARCHES participants are required to complete a Mid Term Progress Report and return it to the ARCHES office each semester. The Progress Report form is available on-line (below) and also in the ARCHES office beginning the 7th week of instruction during the Fall and Spring semesters. Progress Reports are due back to ARCHES no later than the 9th week of instruction. 

Below are the directions:

Step one:  Email your professor and request they complete the MTPR form (DUE: Week 9).    Below is suggested text you can send them:

Dear Professor,

I am part of ARCHES, a retention program on campus that supports my academic journey.  We are required to submit progress report every semester.  Would you please complete my progress report by clicking on this link:

Thank you!

(Your name)

Step two:   Once your professor submits the MTPR, a copy will be shared with you.  ARCHES will also receive a copy of it and will follow up with you if necessary.
