Academic Counseling 

Learning styles and skills vary from student to student and Academic Support offers personalized meetings with our staff to discuss a range of topics. Each student receives one-on-one attention and an individualized plan for success.

We utilize an array of resources which may include additional support materials, tutoring, workshops, and other trainings to tailor a program to individual student success.
