Abstract

Since 2002, Arizona State University has had an Academic Success and Professional Development (ASAP) class for upper division native and transfer students, as well as graduate students. The graduate students earned their Bachelor's degree in engineering or computer science while attending the Academic Success class as undergraduates with a CSEMS or SSTEM scholarship. This paper will briefly describe the program and assignments required in the ASAP class. About half of the students in the class have scholarships from a National Science Foundation S-STEM or STEP grant and are required to take the class each semester they have the scholarship. Class challenges include varying the assignments for students who repeat the class several times and to differentiate the undergraduate and graduate student assignments. The paper will describe the graduate student activities of the last year. These activities suggest innovative ways that graduate students can have their education enhanced and, at the same time, how they can help undergraduate students.
