Students who do not meet normal admissions criteria, or who need additional academic support during their freshman year, are accepted into Cairn under Conditional Acceptance. The purpose of Conditional Acceptance is to provide individualized support, equipping each student with academic and life skills through one-on-one mentorship, group workshops, and goal setting. Students will meet with Academic Resource Center staff to develop an individualized Student Success Plan and conduct periodic progress reports. Conditional Acceptance support will remain for two semesters, although a third semester may be required upon evaluation of student progress by the Director of the Academic Resource Center.
For one-on-one help with academic writing and assignments, students can visit the Writing Lab, located in the Academic Resource Center.
Writing Lab Semester Hours
The Masland Library houses a wide collection of books, reference works, periodicals, CDs, DVDs, and other electronic media via the library website. The library also offers two computer labs, a curriculum lab for Education majors, and a writing lab available for use by all students.
