Individual appointments with an Academic Counselor (AC) are available to students who want more intensive help with study skills than a single workshop can provide.
Students seeking individual appointments will complete a study skills assessment that evaluates current study strategies. A student AC will then be assigned to meet with them on a weekly basis to target the skill areas that need improvement.
