5th Week Freshmen Assessment

5th Week Freshmen Assessment

The Academic Advising & Retention Center (AARC) provides a 5th week assessment to all students in 100-level and developmental classes during the 5th week of each semester to help identify areas that may need improvement. Instructors will provide information about students' class performance regarding the following categories: Attendance and Grades. Students may receive a mark for missing class too frequently and/or may receive a mark for having a D/F in the course. Course instructors, academic advisors, residence hall staff and/or the AARC may follow up with students that have one or more marks to discuss potential issues the student may be facing in and out of the classroom.
