Center for Student Success

Students, please keep the Center for Student Success in mind if you need any help in your academic endeavors here at RMU. Listed below are a few of the services offered by the Center for Student Success, and remember that they are here to serve you!

Early Intervention Referral Online Form:  The Early Intervention Referral Form is part of Robert Morris University's comprehensive Early Intervention System which is designed to identify students who may be academically or socially at risk. This online form allows all faculty and staff to alert the Center for Student Success and the Counseling Center of any student who is not making satisfactory academic progress and/or is exhibiting behaviors that may lead to withdrawal or failure. Once a student is identified via the online form, the Director of the Center or appropriate counseling personnel will contact and work with the student in an effort to improve their academic and/or social performance. Faculty and staff may access the online form from the RMU website by clicking on Faculty & Staff, selecting Academic Resources and then selecting Early Intervention Referral Form. The system will require you to log into Sentry Secured Services to complete and submit the form.  To learn more about the warning signs of a crisis, ways to respond, and referral resources you can go to www.rmu.edu/atrisk.

Services for Students with Disabilities:   Robert Morris University is committed to equal opportunity for students with disabilities.  Qualified students with a disability are eligible to receive accommodations and services which may include academic adjustments, modification or alteration of course examinations, and the provision of auxiliary aids.  The Center for Student Success also administers exams to students requiring disability accommodations.  For more information about services for students with disabilities, please contact Stephen Lukens at lukens@rmu.edu,  412-397-6884 or visit the website at rmu.edu/css
