Academic Counseling-Academic Development - Carnegie Mellon University

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 individualized sessions that focus on skills such as:

  • Time management
  • Procrastination
  • Taking lecture notes
  • Exam preparation
  • Avoiding Stress
  • Memory Techniques

The Academic Counseling program is designed to help both students who are having academic difficulty and students who just want to improve their study skills

How Does it Work?


Students can sign up for one or more workshops that are offered throughout the fall and spring semesters using our online registration tool.






Time Management, Stress and Procrastination Wed. 2/11 CUC - Connan 7:00-8:30pm
Time Management, Stress and Procrastination Tue. 3/31 CUC - Danforth Lounge 7:30-9:00pm

We are no longer accepting Academic Counseling requests for the spring semester. We will begin taking requests for the summer term on Monday, May 18, 2015.
