New Student Success Seminar
All Online Master of Business Administration students will be invited to participate in the asynchronous New Student Success Seminar. The goal of the seminar is to help prepare students to succeed as online students at Santa Clara University. The seminar will cover a variety of topics, including an introduction to SCU, tips for managing your work/life balance, expectations for the program, policies, and advice for maximizing your online learning experience.
Your Student Success Coordinator is your instructor for the seminar and will be available to ensure you are completing all the vital tasks within the seminar and to answer any questions that come up along the way. The New Student Success Seminar truly allows new students the opportunity to acclimate to the online learning management system (LMS), so they are comfortable with the technologies and are able to hit the ground running when the term begins!
The Student Success Coordinator's Role
Each student will be assigned a Student Success Coordinator (SSC) for the New Student Success Seminar and continuous support services. The Student Success Coordinator will serve as your key support person from enrollment to graduation. If questions arise regarding registration, the seminar, books, or other administrative issues (processes, department referrals, unforeseen circumstances, etc.), your SSC is the appropriate contact for support.
If the SSC isn't the subject matter expert, they will research the issue and help you find the appropriate department or resource. The student and SSC begin working together during the New Student Success Seminar and will get to know one another better in the Student Success Meeting, which will be scheduled before the first term begins. The SSC will remain the student's point of contact throughout the program to ensure all the next steps are clear for successful matriculation.
