The FSU Proactive Referral and Engagement (PRE) program supports students experiencing academic challenge. We seek to help students before midterms each semester. This early period in the semester is the best time for students to improve their learning, recover from poor test scores, and make informed decisions based on early performance.
We accomplish this work through various methods:
- Helping faculty and students identify when additional help may be needed
- Receiving referrals from faculty about students who need additional help
- Reaching out to offer students assistance in building academic skills (general or specific)
When instructors submit referrals through PRE, it indicates that they care about student success and believe students will benefit from the help provided. Dr. Samantha Nix reaches out personally to each referred student. We encourage students to schedule a session with a study skills tutor or Dr. Samantha Nix to identify learning barriers and develop a plan. Study skills tutors or Dr. Nix will attempt to address students’ general academic needs, and may also refer students to academic departments, tutoring resources, or other student services for more specialized help.
