Flight Path Attendance Initiative

flightPath

The primary focus of Flight Path is to encourage consistent class attendance by freshmen. Regular class attendance is a major factor in determining the academic success of freshmen. This initiative represents a collaborative effort between multiple offices within both Academic Affairs and Student Services including: departmental faculty, Residential Life, Retention Services, and academic support staff. First-year students with documented course absences will receive early intervention contacts from trained members of the Residential Life staff as well as Retention Services and other academic support staff members to ensure students are connected with faculty, staff and services specifically allocated to facilitate their success.
