Post CRP Support - Academic Success Center

Students reinstated into academic programs after CRP are automatically enrolled in the Study Strategies Lab offered by the Academic Success Center.  This is a free course designed to help students stay on track when they return to RIT in fall or spring semester.  It is the student's responsibility to drop the Study Strategies Lab in SIS if they do not wish to remain enrolled.  Failure to attend the class and withdraw from the course on SIS, will result in a failing grade recorded on the student's academic transcript.  Alternatively, a student may wish to sign up for one-on-one academic coaching offered by the Academic Success Center.  Please visit their website for more information: Academic Success Center

ACSC 63 Study Strategies Lab: This hands-on course is designed for students interested in maintaining their study strategies and organizational skills with regular support and feedback from an instructor. (CRPG-061 CRP Academic Strategies is a pre-requisite for this course)
