General Course Resources
We recommend that you meet with your course instructor. Going to their office hours (typically listed in the syllabus and/or on canvas) is a great way to get to know your course instructors as well as learn how to be most successful in your courses.
Before attending office hours, spend some time reviewing the course material and thinking about questions to ask. Those questions are a great way to start the conversation!
We recommend you meet with your academic advisor to discuss how you are doing in the course. They may recommend additional resources as needed and help you explore your options. Make an appointment and view drop-in hours.
