Blueprint for Success

Getting in to SLU is just the start. After beginning classwork, many students discover more obstacles to success than they anticipated. If you think you might benefit from support and accountability to change your current study habits, we're committed to help you improve your current grades.

Students working to improve their study skills

Blueprint for Success is a free student success series designed to help you develop effective strategies to maximize your academic potential. As part of a small group, you will be guided through five 75 minute sessions to unlock the mysteries of managing time, finding motivation and gaining confidence in your academic abilities. Throughout the series, you will have peers and a professional staff member for support.

Who Qualifies for the Blueprint for Success Groups

The Blueprint for Success groups are intentionally developed for first-year students who are seeking to improve their GPA throughout the spring semester. In some cases, your academic advisors or faculty mentors might encourage your participation. 

How to Apply

The application will be made available to students in November and remain open until the start of the spring semester. The application form will ask for information about you and inquire about your availability to meet during the spring semester. 

Session Schedule

The small groups will begin meeting the second week of the spring 2021 semester. To ensure students have consistent support through midterms, the last group meetings will be scheduled until late March.
