Student Success Program

The Student Success Program is a one-year academic support program that provides small classes and a structured introduction to the university to first year students. Participants are admitted to the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire through the Student Success program because they demonstrate the potential to succeed and may need additional support as they transition to college.

Evaluations from past participants indicate that the program provided them with a solid base, eased their transition from high school to college, and got them off to a good start.

The part that was most beneficial to me was learning to handle college — what I could do to balance priorities, what to do when I'm stressed, who to go to for whatever I need.

Program Cost

At this time, there is no additional cost to participation in the Student Success Program.

I believe the Student Success Program helps to give students an effortless transition to college life, with a little extra help. It was very beneficial to have this. It helped in so many areas.
