Providence College Academics
Athletic Academic Services
The Office of Academic Services (OAS) provides specialized support to student-athletes in light of the unique time demands, responsibilities, and rules governing participation in intercollegiate athletics. Services are provided in a safe, personal environment where academic growth is a priority, personal development and independence are enhanced, and long-term success is nurtured by a staff which models these same commitments.
Student-athletes who have distinguished themselves in the classroom as well as on the field or court, may be nominated for the BIG EAST Academic All-Star Team, the HOCKEY EAST Academic Honor Roll, America East All-Academic squad, or COSIDA'S Academic All-America Program. The Providence College Athletic Department also honors student-athletes each semester who have achieved a 3.00 grade point average or higher.
The student-athlete support staff includes the following:
Jonathan Gomes, Associate Director of Student-Athlete Services
Kaitlyn O'Malley, Assistant Director of Student-Athlete Services
Anthony Mendes, Academic Coordinator for Student-Athletes
Marissa Zadrozny, Academic Coordinator for Men's Basketball
Services available to Providence College student-athletes are the following:
Progress report slips (i.e., requesting information regarding class attendance and performance) are sent to each instructor for all student-athletes at least once per semester. The staff tracks individual progress, schedules meetings with student-athletes as appropriate, and personally contacts instructors as necessary.
The staff meets with student-athletes, individually and in-groups, regarding academic, athletic, career, and/or personal issues.
Life Skills Program/Special Projects
Programs and workshops on select life skills (i.e., NCAA/CHAMPS Life Skills Program beginning Fall 1998) are presented, covering the following five component areas: academics, personal development, community service, athletics, and career development. The OAS has collaborative relationships with many units on campus to help provide these services.
At the beginning of each semester, instructors are notified of each student-athlete's travel/competitive schedule.
The staff assists student-athletes with planning and course registration. In conjunction with the Office of Academic Records, dates are determined for pre-registration each semester.
Quiet, monitored study time is available, during daytime and evening hours. Student-athletes are required and/or recommended to attend, on a sport-by-sport basis, by their respective head coach.
Tutorial Services and The Writing Center
The Tutorial Center provides peer tutoring in almost all subject areas. The Tutorial Center is open until 9:00 pm weeknights. The Writing Center provides more intensive and specialized writing support.
