Student Success Weeks

MITT uses the 7-1-7 academic model to set students up for success. Students have seven weeks of classes, a Student Success Week, and seven more weeks of classes. During Student Success Weeks, there are no classes, allowing students to catch up on studies and access additional sessions and supports.

Throughout Student Success Weeks, Career and Employment Services and Student Life offer optional training and professional development opportunities for students. These offerings are designed to better prepare students for careers and strengthen their Success@Work skills.
