Academic Student Achievement Program (ASAP!)

Indiana University—Purdue University Fort Wayne 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

ASAP! is a student success initiative designed to retain a diverse group of students including those of various ethnicities, ages, and socioeconomic statuses. The program focuses on three areas: academic monitoring (early intervention), student and leadership development, and career and professional development.

Academic Coaching and Monitoring

ASAP! Provides academic coaching and monitors student success and through SAGE, an electronic early alert system. IPFW faculty submit progress alerts the 6th week of each semester through SAGE, which allows  the ASAP! Coaches to provide proactive academic coaching to improve your performance in the classroom or connect the student to the many resources at IPFW.
