The University of California at Irvine and the Department of Athletics has made a commitment to the academic progress of our Student-Athletes and we make every effort to provide a comprehensive network of academic and life skills support for the Student-Athlete's use in the pursuit of a degree. With the academic and life skills support programs offered within our department and the resources available on campus, student-athletes are capable of achieving their dreams and goals both academically and athletically. We serve 400 student-athletes in 18 varsity sports. Due to the size of the department and the number of students we monitor, we as an academic and student services staff, can deal effectively with problems and come up with solutions rapidly while maintaining close contact with our student-athletes, coaches and professors alike. This flexibility allows an aggressive approach to providing services to our student-athletes, as evidenced by our Study Table and Grade Check programs.
