The ISUcceed Program was created to assist students with the transition from high school to ISU.  ISUcceed addresses issues that commonly impede student success such as time management, engagement and study skills.  Through ISUcceed, students can develop strong academic study skills and develop leadership and professional skills that will help them throughout college and beyond.  Additionally, ISUcceed assists students who are facing academic difficulties. 

The ISUcceed Program:

  • Involves and assists parents and/or guardians in the process of preparing their student for college.

  • Helps students transition from high school to college and adjust to the academic and social rigors of college life.

  • Guides and supports students as they learn to navigate the university and helps them develop positive academic strategies.

  • Helps students build leadership and professional skills.

  • Assists students who are facing academic difficulties or have been placed on academic probation.

  • ISUcceed is free of charge and open to all incoming freshmen students. Students will receive information about the program prior to new student orientation and can sign up for the program during orientation.
