NOTE: You will not receive your alternate pin to register if you do not attend one of the BLAST workshops and complete your Academic Success Plan.

  • Why do students need to attend BLAST?
    Students need attend BLAST for several reasons:
    • Staff in the Student Academic Success Office (SASO) serves as advisors to students who attend BLAST and are dedicated to the student’s success.
    • Students are motivated and empowered to succeed academically, personally, and professionally through one-on-one meetings with SASO advisors.
    • Students on strict probation are required to attend BLAST in order to receive their alternate pin number to register for classes. 

Additionally, students who received a financial aid appeal are required to attend BLAST and comply with their academic plan in order to receive financial aid in the subsequent semester
