In 2012, with the passage of Senate Bill 1456 (SB 1456), the Seymour-Campbell Matriculation Act of 1986 was renamed Seymour-Campbell Student Success Act of 2012 (referred to as the Student Success Act).
The bill refocuses and updates matriculation language to align with the recommendations from the Student Success Taskforce (SSTF) regarding services needed to support students in developing an “informed” education goal, developing educational plans and declaration of a course of study.
It also reinforced the need to leverage technology to provide these services.
The funded program named the Student Success and Support Program Opens in new window provides funding targeted to the core matriculation services: orientation, assessment, counseling, advising and educational planning.
The Common Assessment Initiative work is in direct support of the Student Success Program.
