We want to empower you to achieve your potential as an active, confident and independent learner. Your frequent and active participation in academic programs, courses, workshops, resources and engagement with other students and professional staff members will help you along the way.

Individual Consultation

We’ll work with you through one-on-one individual consultations to help improve academic skills, including time management and test-taking strategies. Individual consultations and conversation groups are also available to students who wish to practice their English language skills.

Peer-led Academic Resources

Looking for a study group or subject-matter help? We can help you find a peer tutor or form a study group with a skilled tutor. For some courses, we offer Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions led by students who know how to facilitate learning.

Success Workshops

Success workshops, designed for groups, can support your learning in and out of the classroom.  Additionally, there are workshops designed for international students to help with English language skills.

UNIV 100, 102 and 103 are non-credit, pass/no pass courses to help you with academic skills. UNIV 100 focuses on time management approaches and study strategies. UNIV 102 give you the tools to develop effective strategies for presenting in classes. UNIV 103 focuses on academic skills and general fluency in English.
