Student Advising and Personal Plan for Success

All students are assigned an academic advisor by the Registrar’s office for the purpose of completing the Personal Plan for Success (PPS). Students must meet with their advisor during a specified 2-3 week period during their first quarter, and subsequent quarters, based on their seniority and needs.

The purpose of the PPS meeting is to provide counsel to students based on their performance and preferences. Four pillars of Christian formation are discussed: human; intellectual; spiritual; and formation for mission.

Each student is required to complete online PPS questions through Moodle before attending the appointment with their advisor. Faculty advisors can work with new and continuing students to: provide general academic and curricular information; recommend supplemental services; clarify academic regulations; review aspects of academic life; monitor academic progress; and assist students with decision making strategies.

It is the student’s responsibility to schedule this meeting. Incomplete meetings may result in fines and holds on accounts, which will impede registration.

Questions regarding the PPS process should be directed to the student’s academic advisor or to dculbertson@jpcatholic.com.
