Sample Statements for Course Syllabi

Example #1
At Hawaiʻi Community College we want every student to be successful. MySuccess Referral is a campus-wide effort that seeks to support students early in the semester when they first begin experiencing difficulty in a class. If I feel you are having difficulty in my class (ex. missing class, missing assignments, and low test scores) I may refer you to the Counseling, Advising, and Support Services Center. Once referred, a counselor will follow up with you by phone or email to find out what kinds of help you might need, connect you with the necessary resources, and to help you develop a strategy for success.

Example #2
It is with great hope that every student at Hawaiʻi Community College be successful. Therefore, if an instructor feels you need extra support outside of the classroom in order to have a positive experience in your class, the instructor may generate an MySuccess Referral to ensure that you have access to all of the resources you may need. Once referred, a counselor will follow up with you by phone or email to find out what kinds of help you might need, connect you with the necessary resources, and help you develop a strategy for success.

Example #3

I want every student to be successful in my class. Additionally, I want to make sure that all students have access to the resources they need to be successful. Therefore, if I feel you need extra support outside of my classroom, I will send an MySuccess Referral to the Counseling, Advising, and Support Services Center. Once I refer you, a counselor will follow up with you by phone or email to find out what kinds of help you might need, to connect you with the necessary resources, and to help you develop a strategy for success.
