SUU is committed to every student's success.

A student whose high school GPA falls below the threshold for admission to SUU may be offered the opportunity to participate in the COMPASS program (COMPrehensive Academic Support & Success). 

The COMPASS program helps provisionally admitted students refine their study strategies, mindsets, and personal management skills so they set themselves up to thrive in a higher education setting. Successful COMPASS students actively participate in a student success course and regularly meet with peer mentors. 

Students are required to enroll in SUU 1050: College Student Success (3 credits) in their first semester. They must complete the course with a minimum grade of “C” and achieve a 2.0 cumulative GPA by the end of their second semester to continue attending SUU in subsequent semesters.
