What is Plan for Success?

Plan for Success is a program for students who have been admitted to K-State by exception. Plan for Success students are appointed an Academic Counselor whose main role is to support these students through all of their first year needs. Academic Counselors assist students by meeting frequently throughout the year to discuss the students' needs, concerns, class schedules, goals, and progress.
