Carthage and COVID-19

Center for Student Success

The Center for Student Success has transitioned to virtual operations until further notice.

For questions or concerns, please reach out to any of our individual team members or email us at studentsuccess@carthage.edu.

Advising and Registration

New and undeclared students without faculty advisors will begin advising and registration appointments for summer/fall courses with their student success advisors on Monday, March 30. Appointments will be held in an electronic format and students should refer to their advisor for the most appropriate format (phone, Google Hangouts/Meet, Zoom, etc.).

Faculty, staff, and students can access a variety of helpful advising and registration resources through the academic advising page of our website and review the revised advising and registration period dates.

Carthage Academic Achievement Program

Students enrolled in the Carthage Academic Achievement Program (CAAP) will meet with their student success advisors electronically and should defer to their advisor for the most appropriate format (phone, Google Hangouts/Meet, Zoom, etc.). Advisors may request that CAAP meetings with their students occur more frequently than originally discussed in order to adjust each student’s academic and personal goals and ensure students are getting the support from afar.

College Success Seminar

All College Success Seminar courses underway this spring will be moved to an online format with modified course requirements. Students enrolled in these courses have already been notified of their respective changes. 

Student Leadership Opportunities

Peer Coach recruitment to assist, support, and mentor fall 2020 incoming students through College Success Seminar has been extended to Monday, April 6. Students can review the volunteer position description and submit their application. Recruitment for 2020-21 First in the Family pre-orientation leaders and mentors has closed, but faculty and staff are still welcome to recommend and refer students to Peer Coaching as an upcoming leadership opportunity. Training for these two leadership roles is still planned for Saturday, April 18, but will be transitioned to an online format.

Student Outreach System

The Student Outreach System (SOS) is a phenomenal tool for recognizing and reporting students’ unique challenges and providing the support they need. Any member of the Carthage community can submit a concern about a current student to the SOS using their Carthage username and password. This includes all faculty, staff, and students.

Students are also able to submit a concern about themselves and are encouraged to advocate for themselves and peers who are facing academic, financial, or personal challenges at any point in the semester. Use it early. Use it often. See our FAQ page

Wednesday Workshop Series

Sessions will move to an electronic format. Students will not need to be available at the originally scheduled date and time as the materials will be available anytime once posted online.
