IPFW places a high priority on student retention. In an effort to assist in the retention and academic success of students of diverse, first-generation, and lower-income college students including Perkins Grant, Twenty-first Century Scholars, and Summer Bridge students, the Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs has initiated the Academic Student Achievement Program (ASAP!).
The mission of the Academic Student Achievement Program (ASAP!) is to provide an early warning system that identifies students in need of academic intervention during that semester. The program focuses on three areas: academic monitoring (early intervention), student and leadership development, and career and professional development.
ASAP! also provides progress alerts the 6th week of the semester, and monitors student success. This allows the ASAP! Coaches to provide proactive academic coaching to improve performance in the classroom or connect the student to the many resources at IPFW.
