Student Life

Academic Support

In coordination with academic departments, Student Services provides a variety of academic support for all student groups. These services are free of charge to all students.

Tutors

Student Services offers tutoring sessions for a variety of classes that are held each semester. These sessions help students clarify difficult concepts and prepare for quizzes and exams. They are led by instructional assistants who have been identified by faculty members as individuals who possess both content knowledge and the ability to communicate that knowledge to fellow students. The availability of and times of tutoring sessions vary by semester.

Study Skills

Student Services assists students with the development of general study skills to improve performance and reduce the stress associated with college study. This can be arranged through an individual appointment, or students can take advantage of study skills workshops conducted each semester.

Early Warning Notice System

The Early Warning Notice (EWN) system allows students to receive formal notice of attendance or performance issues that may impact their grade in a particular course. Notice is sent to the student's University email account and the student's advisor. Student Services provides tutoring information to students who receive EWNs in classes supported by tutoring services.
