Academic Support helps students develop college skills and knowledge through study skills and student life planning assistance.
Academic Success Seminars (workshops)
A series of seminars (workshops) are conducted each semester to assist students with developing and improving their college-readiness skills. Topics include time-management, study skills, test-taking skills, managing test anxiety, note taking and reading strategies and more. Faculty, contact the Director to schedule a presentation for your class.
In addition to the seminars offered, students may elect to meet with Academic Services for a more personalized discussion of their academic concerns. Students with special circumstances may elect to meet for a consultation or students may elect a one-on-one meeting following a workshop to continue the discussion or when a workshop is not offered that addresses an individual’s need. Consultations are offered by request. Contact Kimberly LaBoone to schedule a meeting.
