Description/Overview

MySuccess has three main components: Early Warning, Connect Appointment Scheduler, and the Success Network.

MySuccess Early Warning is a communication tool that integrates with Blackboard ​that allows you to commend students who are doing particularly well. You can also contact students who are struggling and encourage them to see you or seek other assistance; these students will receive information about available academic support services, such as tutoring, that can help them get on track.

The Connect Appointment Scheduler lets you make portions of your calendar available so that your students can reserve an appointment online.

Each student has a unique network within MySuccess that includes his or her assigned academic advisor and instructors for current courses. The network, combined with the Connect Appointment Scheduler, makes it possible for students to conveniently locate their academic advisor and campus resources online and schedule an appointment. ​

Getting Started

To log in, users will be able to access to MySuccess from one of two locations: the Kyou portal or Blackboard.In Blackboard, the link for MySuccess will be found in the Tools module on the MyKU tab.
