First Year Experience (FYE)
The First Year Experience program at Methodist University is designed to provide the tools and resources necessary for students to be successful in and out of the classroom. As you begin your academic career, the First Year Seminar Class (FYS 1100) bridges the gap between traditional in-class learning and the opportunities Methodist University offers to make you a successful student. From visiting the career services office, having an interactive class with our Student Activities Office, and discovering the academic resources offered to all students, the FYS class is a dynamic environment to begin your Methodist University Journey. Along with interactive class sessions, each FYS section has an upperclassmen peer mentor that offers firsthand experience of Methodist University. Your academic success starts here!
The Art of Self-Leadership (TAS-L)
TAS-L is a 13-week seminar series open to all MU Students. The curriculum is based on The Art of Self-Leadership by Dr. Tim Elmore. Students who complete the program will receive a certificate and be well equipped to develop a personal plan for success!
Academic Recovery Program (ARP)
The Center for Student Success (CFSS) offers the Academic Recovery Plan (ARP) to help students who are on academic probation return to good academic standing. Students on academic probation must design a personal plan to address their academic standing. Each probation student must attend a meeting with a Student Success professional during the first fifteen days of the semester of probation. The purpose of the meeting is to design an individual plan for success.
Methodist Academic Achievement Program (MAAP)
The MAAP Program provides students with conditional admission raise their academic profile and achieve their academic potential.
The staff at the Center for Student Success is always available for personal academic consultations. We offer personal attention and customized academic planning during one-on-one meetings. Contact a member of our staff for more information regarding personal academic consultations.
