Judgement-free support for our students.

Academic Support Counseling is a resource for your academic and personal development. Meet one-on-one with an Academic Support Counselor (ASC) who will work with you to identify challenges you might be facing and discuss strategies for improvement.

Receive support outside of faculty, family, and friends. Expect a judgment-free and private conversation. Rather than advising on course-specific content, an ASC will review academic success strategies such as: study strategies, time management, and how to balance school with personal life and other commitments. Additionally, we can make appropriate referrals and connections to other on-campus support services and resources.
