We offer a study skills course that is mandated for students entering the university deemed underprepared. One assignment for the course is to pick from 4 options, tutoring, writing center, math center, or career and professional development center and have a meeting/appointment. We do the same assignment for our academic probation course. This is as close as we have gotten to mandating support services. Sadly, even with points attached, a fair number just don't complete this assignment.
I am interested in what others are doing so thanks for bringing this to the list.
As a retention effort, JCC is exploring the mandating and/or "normalization" of tutoring and study skills support (and possibly other functional area supports). Are your services mandated or normalized with any population or course? We are looking specifically at high D/F/W courses as well as reworking our processes with students on probation, but all ideas are appreciated.
To this point, embedded tutoring is the only similar effort we've put into place.
Thanks for your ideas!
