Athletic Academic Advising Programs
The Athletic Department at Florida State University has made a commitment to providing our student athlete with one of the finest and most comprehensive tutorial programs in the nation. The tutorial program is just one of several key support services that are available to all student-athletes as they progress towards their goal of obtaining a college degree from FSU.
SAAS hired approximately 70 tutors a year, from a variety of academic departments, who are committed to providing proactive in individualized assistance with course comprehension and study skills. The Tutoring program provides student-athletes the opportunity to meet individually with tutors, with the overall goal being for the student-athletes to develop different study habits, various ways to approach and understand material, and effective test preparation methods. The tutors engage the student-athletes in different ways to become academically successful.
Our “Objective Tutoring Plus” program gives student-athletes additional assistance outside of their normally scheduled tutoring sessions. These sessions, which are scheduled through the student-athlete, advisor, and tutor further engage the student-athlete in the academic process by establishing learning objectives and completing them within in the duration of the appointment.
Tutorial assistance is a free service available to all student athletes in any of their academic coursework and may be obtained by filing out a tutorial request form through GradesFirst website or through discussing their needs with their advisor.
The SAAS Mentor Program is designed to assist incoming freshman, transfers and “at-risk” student-athletes with their transition to Florida State University by developing the necessary skills to become a successful student. This developmentally-oriented program create relationships between the mentors and mentees that will foster a well-rounded learning experience not only in the realm of academics but in all aspects of student-athletes’ lives.
In these one-on-one meetings, student-athletes work with their assigned mentor in the areas of communicating with professors, note taking, study strategies, university policies, time management and accountability. The overall goal of the Mentor Program is for the student-athlete to move forward from this process so that they will be able to proceed throughout the rest of their collegiate career with the appropriate tools to be successful.
