What is Academic Counseling?

Academic Counseling is an assistance program that helps students acquire more effective and efficient study skills. Student Academic Counselors (ACs) conduct group workshops throughout the semester and weekly individual sessions that focus on skills such as:

  • Time management
  • Procrastination
  • Taking lecture notes
  • Exam preparation
  • Avoiding Stress
  • and other skills

The Academic Counseling program is designed to help:

  • students who are having academic difficulty
  • students who just want to improve their study skills

Individual Appointments

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.

Request an Academic Counseling Initial Consultation

You will receive an email with the day and time of your initial consultation and directions on taking the online study skills assessment.
