Free webinar |  | 1-2 PM ET

Students are faced with a dizzying array of choices - from majors to study abroad programs to internships - when setting foot on campus. Even with the help of advisors, it’s easy for students to get off track - leading lower student satisfaction, delayed graduation and sometimes drop outs. Strategic registrars recognize that degree progression is a key aspect of the student experience and crucial for institutional priorities related to student success, such as persistence and on-time graduation. John Papinchak, Registrar at Carnegie Mellon University (CMU), will join Stellic in discussing CMU’s approach to degree progression and how registrars can be a partner in driving institutional priorities through degree planning.

In this webinar, we’ll cover:

  • Why degree progression is important to student success and other institutional priorities

  • How registrars can diagnose and solve degree progression issues in their student body

  • Specific examples of strategies that CMU has employed to help students progress in their degrees effectively

Presenters:

John Papinchak

University Registrar, Carnegie Mellon University
