11 PILOTS Program Rebeca Paz, Director, 101 Holton Hall

12 PILOTS is a Freshman Retention program to... ● Provide academic structure ● Encourage academic discipline & critical reasoning ● Offer individual attention ● Assist students in making a strong connection to the campus community

13 PILOTS has the advantage of... ● Smaller classes in social sciences (and College Algebra in the spring) for more individual attention ● On the spot tutoring in the PILOTS study lab ● Personalized advising throughout the semester ● A community within a community PILOTS courses have the SAME curriculum as non-PILOTS courses– they are not watered down

14 Freshmen benefit from PILOTS because they... ● Need better study skills and habits ● Need to improve organizational and time management skills ● Are not used to asking for help ● Don’t know how to get structured tutoring and guidance PILOTS provides STRUCTURE and teaches the SKILLS to be successful
