Academic Support

Academic Support helps students develop college skills and knowledge through study skills and student life planning assistance.

Services Include:

Academic Success Seminars (workshops)

A series of seminars (workshops) are conducted each semester to assist students with developing and improving their college-readiness skills. Topics include time-management, study skills, test-taking skills, managing test anxiety, note taking and reading strategies and more. Faculty, contact the Director to schedule a presentation for your class. Students, visit the events page for upcoming sessions and times.

Student Consultations

In addition to the seminars offered, students may elect to meet with Academic Services for a more personalized discussion of their academic concerns. Students with special circumstances may elect to meet for a consultation or students may elect a one-on-one meeting following a workshop to continue the discussion or when a workshop is not offered that addresses an individual’s need. Consultations are offered by request. Contact the Director to schedule a meeting.

Math and Science Help Sessions

Math & Science Help Sessions are available select weekdays (contact your instructor or professor for times). Get help with homework, or ask questions about the lecture/lab, discuss the best way to succeed in the course.
