Brown Bag Lunch: Working with Student Athletes: SASSO Updates and Sharing Best Practices

We would like to thank our wonderful partners in SASSO for the great updates and information they shared with advisors at this months Brown Bag Lunch. This event was a great way for us to learn about ways we can better serve our student athletes, network with our colleagues, and get questions answered to help us better serve our student athletes. Here are some key takeaways:

  • SASSO Permission to Drop Letter. Student athletes must maintain full-time status in autumn and spring in order to remain active. However, dropping a course could also affect their percentage of completion towards their degree for eligibility and financial aid purposes. For this reason, if a student athlete comes to you to drop a class, they should have a SASSO approved drop letter to provide you. If you are unsure as to whether it is okay to drop a course for a student athlete, reach out to their SASSO advisor.
  • Encourage your faculty to complete the instructor feedback reports. Less than 30% are being completed at this time, and these reports help SASSO proactively support students before the end of the semester. This year, the feedback reports are being sent out in weeks 6 and 12.
  • If you ever have any questions when working with student athletes, please do not hesitate to reach out to the student’s SASSO advisor.
