MTSU Early Arrival & Student Success Programs

Accelerated Mentoring Program (AMP)


This grant addresses the need for effective programs developed to eliminate the achievement gap.  Through components of peer mentoring, tutoring, student success coaching, family education, and financial assistance, underserved students are afforded a more level playing field to aid them toward obtaining a bachelor’s degree.

  • AMP focuses on enhancing student engagement, retention, and success of first- generation and minority populations.
  • Incoming freshmen and transfer students may apply to participate in the program by completing the AMP Pre-Entry before August 6th or until all spots are filled.
  • Students will be paired with a peer mentor within a few weeks of application.
  • Peer mentors will guide students through 3 Student Success Modules prior to school starting. Peer mentors will have bi-weekly check-ins with students throughout the semester.
  • One component of AMP is financial support through microgrants that participants may apply for up two times during a semester.
  • Student Success Checks (early alerts) will be requested of instructors for students in AMP.
  • AMP participants are required to have a one-on-one meeting with a Student Success Coach in the Fall and Spring semester.
  • AMP will provide a family education program to assist 1st generation families and minority families.
