Academic Support

You are here

As you make the transition from high school to college, you may find the expectations are greater and that the study strategies you used in high school no longer guarantee your academic success. Engineering students can find academic support through the following programs (also see Tips for Academic Success). To view or print a PDF of fall 2015 schedule items, click here.

Peer Advocates - Engineering Peer Advocates are students in their junior or senior year who offer a variety of direct services — peer advising, help with choosing a major, training in study skills, and career services — as well as referrals to other campus services. Peer Advocates receive paraprofessional training from a variety of campus resources. The Peer Advocates hold walk-in office hours outside of the Dean’s Office (ECAD 100), in the Engineering Quadrangle in the Aden Hall Tutoring Lounge (ADEN 102), and offer online chat services. First-year students can learn more about this program on the Peer Advocates page.
