Academic support services

Need help? The University offers a variety of free services to help you succeed academically.

For students struggling with personal or academic problems

College can be stressful for students as they balance academics with their lives outside of the classroom.

If you are aware of someone in distress, please refer the student to us. One of our caring student-support professionals will offer resources for assistance.
