About Student Success in Arts & Letters
Students Achieving Greater Excellence (SAGE)
Students Achieving Greater Excellence (SAGE) is the student success center for the College of Arts & Letters. SAGE is a dedicated space for students majoring in an Arts & Letters program to receive academic support as they navigate university graduation requirements and processes. SAGE Advisors work one-on-one with students to ensure they are on the best and most efficient path toward graduation.
SAGE services include:
- GE advising as informed by departmental major/minor advising
- Graduation advising
- Graduation application assistance
- Student submissions of graduation applications
- Guidance through Academic Probation, Continued Probation, Disqualified Status, and Dismissal processes
- Referrals to additional Student Affairs services, such as housing, personal counseling and financial aid
Four-Year Promise (4YP)
4YP is a student success pre-enrollment program. Students in select Arts and Letters majors have the opportunity to be pre-enrolled in required courses each semester in order to graduate in four years. 4YP students “promise” to follow a prescribed roadmap of GE/GR, major, and elective courses; have flexible scheduling availability; and remain in good academic standing. In return, the College of Arts and Letters “promises” that 4YP students will graduate in four years (eight semesters).
Arts & Letters Professional Seminar Series (ALPSS)
ALPSS, a partnership between the College of Arts & Letters and the Career Center, is a six-week series of career-preparation workshops designed to prepare students for transition from college to career. Students develop the skillsets to prepare them for many post-graduation career paths. ALPSS teaches students how to explore and prepare for such opportunities. The series guides students through each step of the “landing a job” process and spotlighting guest speakers who share their career insights and experiences. Participants earn one unit of course credit (ALS 199). ALPSS is only offered in the spring semester.
