What is the 30-60-90 Student Success Roadmap?
Coupled with the credit goals of 30 credits (sophomore status), 60 credits (junior status), and 90 credits (senior status), the 30-60-90 Student Success Roadmap provides key benchmarks on a clearly marked route to a successful college experience at the University of Minnesota Duluth.
Nearly all students who enter higher education have the goal of completing a college degree and most state they plan on doing so in four years. So why is it that fewer than half of the people who enter higher education eventually earn a degree and only a quarter do so within four years? It is time to dispel some myths! Once you achieved admission to UMD, your success has relatively little to do with intellectual ability, with whether you know your major or are undecided, or with whether you get along with your roommate. What matters are the actions you take on a daily basis – whether you devote enough time to your course work, whether you become involved outside of class, whether you have a financial plan in place, and whether you plan your academic progress.
While each student is the primary architect of his/her college experience, faculty and staff are responsible for engaging students in curricular and co-curricular activities and for reinforcing the positive student behaviors that contribute to a successful educational experience. The 30-60-90 Roadmap is intended to communicate consistent expectations to students, to guide student actions, to facilitate discussions between academic advisors and students, and to reinforce the important role each member of our community plays in promoting student success.
