Welcome to ACHIEVE!

ACHIEVE gives you a convenient way to keep track of your students - raising flags when you see a pattern of behavior that concerns you, ensuring that the people on campus who can intervene are aware. It also allows your students to easily book an appoinment with you or someone else who can help.

Getting started is easy! Accessible through MyState, ACHIEVE will automatically display all students that you have been assigned or are enrolled in your courses.

The first thing you will want to do is setup your profile. Some of your information has already been imported from Banner, but you have the option to update and further personalize your profile.

Here is an example of what your ACHIEVE profile will look like:
