Steps Toward Success

Your success is extremely important to UAB. At the Vulcan Materials Academic Success Center (VMASC), we assist students who have filed a Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) Appeal in creating a success plan. Through a holistic review, SAP Success Plan Coordinators work with students to develop an individualistic plan that lays out requirements for students to fulfill over the semester. Success plans are intentionally designed to help students make satisfactory academic progress towards degree completion, whether it be through tutoring, study hall, Supplemental Instruction, or workshops.

Before you create a SAP Success Plan with the Vulcan Materials Academic Success Center, you need to…

  • File a SAP appeal.
  • Communicate with your advisor regarding your appeal and class schedule for the upcoming semester.
  • Register for classes for the upcoming semester.
  • Confirm that your course registration is correct on your SAP Appeal Form page on BlazerNET.

Once you have completed the above steps, contact the Vulcan Materials Academic Success Center (VMASC) to schedule an appointment with an SAP Success Plan Coordinator. You can schedule an appointment using the VMASC’s online scheduling system or by calling the VMASC at 205-934-8184.
