Services and Programs We Offer

Academic Coaching

An Academic Coach is a trained junior, senior, or graduate student who is eager to help support you along your academic journey. Coaches meet on a weekly basis with students to provide holistic support and promote personal well-being in the context of academic and co-curricular success.  If you are interested in one-on-one coaching, please check out the Academic Coaching section or follow these instructions for requesting a coach.

Drop-In Hours

Each semester, coaches are available for short-term, one on one support at designated Drop-in Hours. Students have the opportunity to attend Drop-in Hours to manage upcoming assignments, exams, and activities in the weeks leading up to midterms, finals, and other high-volume points of the semester.

Workshops

Academic Coaches host informative workshops throughout the semester to support students in stress management, planning, and study skills. These workshops are highly interactive, allowing students to ask questions and put study strategies into practice.

Newsletter

Academic Support Services’ biweekly newsletter contains important dates, reminders, events, and study strategies to help students navigate the semester. We include relevant tips and resources that reinforce the support from our workshops and Google Classroom. Subscribe to the newsletter to receive at-a-glance updates from our office.
