Bulldog Scholars Program

Bulldogs are known for their grit and determination.  Our Bulldog Scholars Program provides 1-on-1 academic mentoring for a close-knit group of freshman students who have been identified with the potential to succeed at Truman State University.

The Center for Academic Excellence (CAE) coordinates/implements the Bulldog Scholar program to ensure each scholar has the needed tools, both academic and co-curricular, to make a seamless transition to campus life at Truman.  The CAE assists each Bulldog Scholar with identifying the multiple benefits of their liberal arts and science education to fulfill their career aspirations after graduation.

  • Meet with their assigned CAE Advisor once a month
  • Enroll in no more than 15 credits a semester their first year
  • Enroll and pass the INDV 110 – Skills for Academic Success course
  • Remain in good academic standing
