Offered Academic Services

Study Hall

Study hall is a tool and a privilege given to student-athletes intended to create an environment conducive to advancing education. Every individual learns by a variety of methods, and study hall should be a place where all of those methods can be practiced. Individual work may be completed using the computers or private desks, while group efforts can be focused in parts of the Humphreys Center or in a study room such as W261.

As a method of accountability, study hall provides a cornerstone for the communication between coaches and academic staff members. Coaches receive weekly updates on their team’s logged hours and given feedback on their student-athlete’s academic progression.

Tutoring

  • The purpose of the tutoring program is to provide individualized subject specific supplemental instruction/assistance to student-athletes.
  • Student-athletes can meet individually or in some cases in a group setting with their assigned tutors. Strict attendance, reporting and compliance with tutor expectations is ensured.
  • Student-athletes can request a tutor through the academic support staff or GradesFirst.
  • Additional tutoring on campus (including the ETSU Writing Lab) is available for student-athletes at the Center for Academic Achievement on campus - http://www.etsu.edu/academicaffairs/cfaa/.

Mandatory Advising

Advising at ETSU is a collective effort between both the student-athlete and their advisors. In their mandatory advising meetings, student-athletes will receive pertinent information that will create a map of everything they will need to get accomplished and how to accomplish them while studying at ETSU. Each student-athlete has two advisors to help keep them on track for academic success: major advisors and Humphreys Academic Center Student-Athlete Academic Services Advisors.

Major Advisors

Every student at ETSU has a major advisor that is assigned to them within their academic department. Students will meet with their respective academic advisor throughout the semester to obtain information on course selection, academic requirements, and graduation requirements.

Humphreys Academic Center Student-Athlete Academic Services Advisors

Student-athletes also have Student-Athlete Academic Services Advisors who advise them on matters of NCAA eligibility requirements, class scheduling, progress toward degree, academic intervention, providing coaches with academic updates, and informing professors with travel schedules.
