STAR Program

The Students Taking Academic Responsibility (STAR) program is an online workshop designed to help students return to good academic standing.  Students on academic probation will be required to complete the STAR program in order to enroll in their next semester. There are four required modules in the STAR program:

Module 1:  Academic Standing:  The student will become familiar with the Academic Probation, Suspension and Reinstatement Policy.

Module 2:  Challenges to Success:  The student will complete an assessment that asks her/him to explore study skills, personal skills, career & major skills, and resources to use.  To round out the exercise, the final part asks the student to focus on challenges to success.

Module 3:  Return to Good Standing:  Tasks in this module require the student to prioritize responsibilities, set goals, and reallocate time spent on these tasks.

Module 4:  The student will provide an Action Plan that includes elements from the prior modules.

The STAR program is currently available to probationary students and must be completed by Friday, May 24, 2013 for Summer sessions.  Students can access STAR via their MyWashburn account on the MyCourses tab.  Failure to complete the STAR program by the deadline will result in an enrollment hold and will require students to meet with an academic advisor in the Center for Student Success.

If you have any questions regarding the STAR program, please contact Academic Advising at 785.670.1942.
