Student Advisors will support each student throughout his/her chosen degree program at Grantham University. Each student will be assigned a Student Advisor (SA) immediately upon enrollment. The SA will maintain regular communications with the student to create realistic goals for the timely completion of courses to correlate with each student’s graduation goals. The SA will celebrate achievements with each student and assist the student in his/her educational growth.
Student success coaching is an exploration and discovery process that enables the student to view him/herself from a fresh perspective. Just like a coach in any sport, the SA’s goal is to help the student perform to the best of his/her ability. An SA can help with:
- Academic advising
- Student accountability to his/her academic plans
- Academic motivation and goal-setting
- Initial help with specific non-academic issues (study habits, time management, etc.)
- Referral to other appropriate University resources
- Appropriate interventions for students identified as at-risk
- Communicating to the proper department any concerns that the student may experience
- Registering for courses each term
The student is responsible for his/her academic decisions and education. In order to assist students most effectively, it is the student’s responsibility to communicate needs and/or concerns to the appropriate representative for a timely and effective resolution.
Student Advising and Learning Center
The Student Advising Learning Center (SALC) promotes student learning through the provision of tutoring, academic support, and mentoring programs. SALC provides tutoring in many subjects for students who are struggling academically. Students are encouraged to seek help from their instructor prior to requesting a tutor.
SALC also offers a mentoring program to support students. Peer mentors assist new students by helping them transition to college and online learning, while faculty mentors serve as professional role models for students in their respective discipline.
The Student Advising Learning Center enhances student learning by helping students develop the skills, attitudes, and behaviors necessary to succeed in an online learning environment. Through tutorial services, learning strategies instruction, academic support, and mentoring, SALC strives to improve students’ academic performance and foster personal development.
- Enhance student learning and academic achievement

- Help students develop the skills, attitudes, and behaviors necessary for self-directed learning

Through SALC’s Early Alert System (EAS), students who achieve less than desirable grades on either of their first two milestones will receive an e-mail containing helpful study tips. SALC offers tutorial assistance to any undergraduate student who experiences academic difficulty and needs individualized attention in order to understand the fundamental concepts and principles of a course. An instructor or academic administrator typically refers a student to SALC; however, a student may contact SALC by e-mailing email@example.com. SALC offers tutoring in all undergraduate academic programs and is available to each student on an as-needed basis.
SALC also offers “The Writing Center” and “The College Algebra Center,” which are specific tutoring areas where students can self-enroll, attend live tutoring sessions, and solicit help from faculty members.
