Passport for Success and Ichabod Ignite Programs

Washburn University, which historically prizes access to postsecondary education, continues to develop pathways that meets students where they are in their individual preparation. Students admitted by exception to regular admission are required to participate in either the Passport for Success program or The Ichabod Ignite program. Both programs are collaborative efforts between the Center for Student Success, Mabee Library, Academic Affairs, Student Life, and Enrollment Management at Washburn University.

These programs consist of coursework, activities and services across a student’s first two years of study at Washburn University that are designed to put them on the path to college success. Instead of rejecting students, these initiatives allow students to enroll in 4 carefully chosen courses, 12-credit hours that work toward graduation, and they are designed to develop their academic ability and success behaviors.

  • Advisor approved course selection and scheduling, leading to approved associate degree.
  • Limit on number of semester hours: 12 credit hours per semester during their first year, with recommended summer classes to maintain 30 credit hours per year. (Exceptions granted by advisor approval.)
  • Enrollment in WU 101 The Washburn Experience during first semester of attendance.
  • Enrollment in WU 115 Academic Enhancement course as directed by advisor.
  • Participation in study skills, career planning, test taking and other seminars offered by the University Tutoring & Writing Center.
