Statement of Commitment and Participation Waiver
Student Success Scholars Program
Division of Student Affairs
As a participant, I agree to:
a) Meet with my mentor, officially, at least once a month. A weekly meeting is
strongly encouraged, as needed. The first meeting must take place within the first
two weeks of the semester. Communications via Facebook, Twitter, email, texting and
phone are all acceptable.
b) Attend an orientation before the start of each semester.
c) Provide weekly update to my mentor via email, texting, face-to-face meeting or phone.
d) Attend a minimum of 3 workshops (academic and/or life skills) and 2 workshops the next semester.
e) Attend a minimum of one community service activity (at least 4 hours/semester).
f) Actively participate in the program for at least 2 semesters, with the option to leave the program after the first semester if my overall GPA is equal or above 2.5.
g) Visit the Office of Career Education & Development and participate in Handshake Career Management System and join a Career Community program to develop a career plan, job search, obtain internship information, etc.
I understand that although I am required to attend only three workshops, many of the workshops and other program activities will aid my development academically and professionally. Therefore, I will endeavor to participate in as many of the program’s workshops and activities as often as I possibly can. Also, I understand that failure to fulfill the responsibilities outlined above my result in my removal from the Program, or a hold may be placed on my account.
As a participant of Student Success Scholars Program of Stockton University, I hereby give permission to my professors or to Stockton University to release my academic progress reports or academic records to my mentor and/or Student Success Scholars Program staff.
* By typing my name below, I have read and understand the expectations and responsibilities set forth above.
