Get to Know Your Student Success Coordinator
Before your first day of class, we assign each student an individual Student Success Coordinator, who, in turn, will develop your personalized plan for academic success, guide you through the enrollment process, run your online orientation, and address any questions or concerns you may have during the program.
And if your Student Success Coordinator doesn’t have an answer immediately available for you, they will research the matter until they are able to direct you to the most helpful resource or department, so you don’t have to spend your time searching for answers.
From the moment you enroll to the moment you stride across the stage at graduation, your Student Success Coordinator remains your go-to contact for support. Your Student Success Coordinator is always looking out for your future, ensuring everything is in order for you to complete your studies at your intended graduation date.
The Online Student Success Orientation
Regardless of your previous experience with online courses, you may harbor some reservations about your ability to succeed in the program as an online student—that’s why your Student Success Coordinator hosts an online orientation for new students before the start of your classes!
From navigating KU Connect, the online learning interface, and receiving your grades to submitting your assignments and collaborating with classmates, your Student Success Coordinator is eager to show you how to get started and address any questions or concerns you may have once you’ve enrolled in the online master’s in sport management program at KU.
