Student Success Center

The Student Success Center, located on the first floor of Wright Hall, serves all Northeast students (seated, online, and dual-enrolled) by providing resources that promote and encourage student success.  These services include success coach guidance, Writing Center support, Co-Lab study area, tutor lab, alcohol and drug prevention, and the Tiger D.E.N. Food Pantry.

Success Coaches

While success coaches currently target freshmen, student athletes, and students seeking admission into health science programs, their services are available to all students.  The coaches promote academic and personal success by monitoring, reporting, and discussing excessive absences with students, reviewing grades and creating study plans, and connecting students to tutorial services, the Writing Center, the Office of Disability Accommodations, counseling services, and the Tiger D.E.N. Food Pantry. 

Success coaches also teach non-credit classes specifically designed for students placed on academic probation.  Students placed on academic probation at the end of the current semester will be enrolled in probation course called Road to Success the following semester.  The course is specifically designed to guide students down a path that will lead to academic good standing reinstatement. 

Success coaches are available on the main campus Monday-Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Students may meet with coaches by appointment or on a walk-in basis.

The staff works with the writer present and taking an active role in his or her own writing.

Co-Lab

The Co-lab, a designated study area within the Student Success Center, was designed and sponsored by Phi Theta Kappa.  Members of Phi Theta Kappa recognized the need for a space on campus where students could work collaboratively during and after school hours.  The Co-Lab is supplied with iPad charging stations for convenience.  The Co-Lab is open to students Monday-Thursday 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. and Friday 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
