This study was designed to determine the need for an academic advising program for student-athletes at the Division III level. Two hundred sixteen undergraduate student-athletes from Rowan University participated in the study by completing a survey that asked about their needs for an all-inclusive academic advising program, that would include advising, mentoring, study hall and tutoring. Phone interviews and a focus group session were conducted with student-athletes in order to more fully answer the question of whether an academic advising program for student-athletes at the Division III level would be helpful and practical. The major findings concluded that there is a need for an academic advising program for student athletes at the Division III level.
