Providing individual consultations, workshops and academic coaching, the Academic Success and Transfer Student Center (the University’s Advising Center) serves as an important resource for undergraduate students.
The Academic Success and Transfer Student Center provides:
- Academic advising for transfer and pre-major students
- Assistance to students transitioning from one major to another
- Support for students having difficulty maintaining GPA for scholarship eligibility or are on academic probation
- Assistance in creating a 4-year plan
While many students visit the Academic Success and Transfer Student Center solely for academic advising, several come to receive advice about how to improve their study skills. Advisors at the Academic Success and Transfer Student Center will counsel students on how to manage their time and review different studying techniques. The Academic Success and Transfer Student Center also offers an academic coaching program; this unique program is designed to help students excel by connecting them with a department advisor, coach, or administrator. In addition to their mentor, students will meet with their academic coach regularly. This additional support and one-on-one contact has proven to be extremely effective in helping students succeed.
The Academic Success and Transfer Student Center also connects students to several support resources such as the Career Center, Academic Resource Center, Disability Support Services, Student Support Services and Counseling. Learn more about these resources »
