Center for Academic Excellence

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 necessary tools, both academic and co-curricular, to make a seamless transition to campus life at Truman.


Bulldog Scholars will:

  • Meet with their assigned CAE Advisor once a month
  • Enroll in no more than 15 credits a semester their first year (except with advisor approval)
  • Enroll and pass the INDV 110 – Skills for Academic Success course during the Spring semester
  • Maintain good academic standing
