SRHT features renowned faculty, cutting-edge research, six laboratories and centers, and a diverse student body of more than 1,000 undergraduate and graduate students each year.

The SAA Academic Success Program was fashioned to provide probationary students more structured and enhanced academic and personal support and accountability.

Through academic coaching and other success initiatives, the Student Retention Coordinator and the Graduate Assistant for Student Success in the Office of Student and Academic Affairs work closely with probationary students as they recover and return to good academic standing with the University and their respective programs.

All students on academic probation are required to meet with the Retention Coordinator or the Graduate Assistant for Student Success for advising sessions.

For questions regarding the Academic Success Program, please contact Ty Lane, Student Retention Coordinator at (703-993-7378), or Talisa Jackson, Graduate Assistant for Student Success at (703-993-2080).
