Identify 'Underprepared' Students and Prepare them for College Success

"Just as students can be underprepared for college, colleges can be underprepared for students; just as students may be at risk because of their background characteristics and behaviors, colleges may put students at risk because of their institutional policies and practices."

Students being 'unprepared' for college experience, is a fact that colleges and universities are still continuing to lament on, and it is quite unlikely that the lamentation is to cease in the near future, due to the level of unpreparedness that the future cohorts of entering college students have. Consequently, higher education must itself become better prepared to handle the influx of underprepared students and students "at risk" for attrition. Preparing the underprepared not only benefits students by increasing their prospects for college success and gainful employment, it also benefits campuses by increasing retention rates, managing enrollments, and maintaining fiscal stability.

Join this session by expert speaker Joe Cuseo to acquire knowledge and practical tools for addressing the issue of student preparedness and get success strategies for underprepared students in college. This session will cover the following target areas:

  • Basic academic skills
  • Academic motivation
  • Educational direction
  • Effective learning and college-going strategies
  • Non-academic (personal) factors that affect success and progress of students

Session Highlights:

  • How should "underprepared" be defined, determined, and assessed?
  • What are the key forms or varieties of student under-preparedness?
  • Who are the most underprepared and "at risk" students?
  • Why are students underprepared?
  • What can colleges and universities do to raise students' level of preparedness before college entry, during their initial transition to college, and at key points later in their college experience?
