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
- 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.

Individualized sessions with an Academic Counselor (AC) are available to students who want more intensive help with study skills than a single workshop can provide. The steps to sign up for individual sessions are simple:
- Students sign-up for an initial consultation.
- Students will be asked to complete an online assessment that evaluates current study strategies.
- After completing the assessment and the initial consultation appointment, a student Academic Counselor will be assigned to meet with students on a weekly basis to target the skill areas that need improvement.
You will receive an email with the day and time of your initial consultation and directions on taking the online study skills assessment.
