Privateer Pathways is designed for students who, because of their ACT or SAT scores, need additional support in mathematics or English. Skills will be developed through the strategic delivery of academic support to students.

The programs cover aspects such as time management, academic honesty, and financial aid. These workshops are in place to assist students during their transition into college. There is also Success Coaching available to students which allows them to meet with a First Year Experience team member bi-weekly. The meetings will cover aspects such as transitions, success skills, time management, and resources for courses.

Each student will be individually evaluated for program eligibility based on high school transcripts and test scores. Participants will receive academic advising on courses required as part of the Pathways program.
