Students Obtaining Success (SOS) is a peer mentoring program for students experiencing academic difficulty. We realize that unsatisfactory academic performance can have many different contributing factors. The SOS program is designed to help students identify their unique challenges and develop an action plan to improve academic performance and return to good academic standing.
Who can participate?
Any student experiencing academic difficulty can inquire about participating in the SOS program, but priority is granted to students on academic probation participating in 49er Rebound. Space is limited and varies by semester.
Participants will identify strengths and sources of academic difficulty. Each participant is assigned an undergraduate student peer mentor for weekly support and guidance. The program lasts for one semester and is individually designed to help students address their unique needs and issues. Participants are expected to meet 1 hour each week with a peer mentor throughout the semester and contribute to creating and following a personal Action Plan to support their return to good academic standing. Participation in SOS is voluntary and FREE!
