CSE Promise - FAQs

What is the difference between a high achieving student and a CSE Promise student?

A CSE student who has excelled at learning the subject matter in their coursework does so by engaging fully in the academic process. This means the student attends class regularly, establishes an appropriate study routine, attends tutoring if needed, stays in close touch with professors, passes exams with strong grades, hands in all assignments on time, conducts presentations according to the established guidelines, and meets any other assignments and/or deadline requirements.

Students might also engage in internships, student teaching, and/or research projects off-campus where they apply coursework knowledge to the "real world." In this way, knowledge is something that the student earns through dedicated, hard work.

Who is eligible to join CSEP?

Undergraduate students who enter the College of Saint Elizabeth as first-time, full-time freshmen are eligible to join CSEP. Students must complete their bachelor's degree at the College in four years.

How do students learn about CSEP?

Students learn about the program during admission events, orientation, email messages, and a well-publicized on-campus event. In addition, students are informed of the program during the first two weeks of their general education courses.

Once students are fully aware of the program qualifications, they are offered the opportunity to sign the CSEP Agreement. Students must sign up by the fall semester deadline. Students are not eligible to join the program at any other time.

How will a student know if they are not fulfilling the requirements?

Data on student requirements and actions are logged into the CSE Connects database. At the end of each semester, the Career Center runs a report to determine student compliance. Students who are no longer in compliance are sent a letter alerting them that they have chosen to become ineligible for the program. Although they are no longer available for CSEP, they are invited to continue in a structured career development program to help them become well-prepared for the next steps after college.

What can parents or other support people do to encourage student success in the CSEP program?
