The Student Success Program at Dixie State University is a structured first-year program designed to help students build a strong foundation for success. Students qualify for this program when they have an index score of < 45. The index score is calculated from GPA and admission test scores. Our students have a team of people who work to help our students succeed. We help students find their personal pathway for success!
Each student has a Success Coach they meet with throughout the semester, who helps them set goals, connect to resources, and learn how to navigate college. Our students enroll in the Study Skills and Student Success Class that is designed to teach study skills and time management; connect students to campus resources; teach students on how to use their strengths to succeed academically. This course has an embedded Active Learning Lab so our students have the opportunity to apply new study skills to current assignments. Students join together again for a 2nd Semester course, Career and Life Skills where they learn some essential soft skills for success.
Additionally, our students have access to the Student Success Center, a one-stop resource spot on campus. We have computers, printer, free printing, study tables, people to answer questions, games, and snacks.
Our students work with their Academic Advisor to create a balanced schedule that works towards completing their general math and English requirements. Students will have a first-year advising hold that ensures their Academic Advisor works with you. It won’t stop you from changing or viewing your schedule.
We BELIEVE in our students and their ability to succeed, and when you are in our program, you have a team of people who have your back and will encourage you to do the work necessary for you to make your dreams a reality.
