The Student-Athlete Success program is designed to assist student-athletes in making the best possible academic and personal transition to the University of Nebraska Omaha. We are responsible to the student, not for the student. The staff works closely with administrators, coaches, faculty, and campus student services personnel to help student-athletes better balance the demands of academic responsibilities with participation in athletics. The services available, congruent with the institution‘s educational mission and its academic policies and procedures, are designed to recognize the importance of a culturally diverse environment and to facilitate the student‘s academic commitment, performance, and responsibility.
It is our purpose to positively influence student-athletes by providing:
• Academic monitoring • Weekly academic progress meetings • Mentoring through professional relationships that promote integrity and responsibility through dialogue and example • Communication with faculty regarding academic progress, competition travel and general feedback • Interpreting UNO and NCAA requirements • Tutorial assistance • Registration assistance • Information and access to institutional support services • Life skill and Leadership development programming • Career development • Textbook program • Laptop computers for travel • First Year Experience course regarding academic and personal development specific to student-athletes

Academic Enhancement Program (AEP)
All new (freshmen and transfer) student-athletes will be required to fulfill a minimum number of weekly AEP hours through the Academic Enhancement Program (AEP). Certain student-athletes that demonstrate a great academic need may be required to participate in additional services beyond the basic AEP hour requirement. Student-Athletes can track all requirements and activities through GradesFirst.
The purpose of the Maverick Student-Athlete Academic Success Tutoring Program is to provide UNO student-athletes with the opportunity to achieve academic success with the support and encouragement of peer tutors. We invite student-athletes to utilize the Tutoring Program to enhance their achievement and improve the quality of their education. Tutoring is not just a resource offered to struggling students, as we strongly encourage our best and brightest students to take advantage of the opportunity to elevate their academic achievement as well.
