Advising and Academic Coaching
Our approach to advising/academic coaching is simple.
What is in the best interest of the student?
Studies show that students who take advantage of academic advising, or academic coaching,
increase the likelihood of succeeding academically. That's why it's important for
every student, regardless of GPA or academic ability, to have a one-on-one session
with the Academic Success Advisor. We specialize in the following:
- Developing effective study and test taking skills
- Learning goal setting and goal refinement techniques
- Enhancing notetaking and reading skills
- Identifying other issues that hinder academic success
- Increasing knowledge of UD resources and services
Academic Success works closely with academic departments and faculty advisors to assist
students in all aspects of their academic success. Students are also encouraged to
see their professors and assigned academic advisors on a regular basis to form positive
mentoring relationships as this will further improve the likelihood of academic success.
If you're interested in regularly scheduled meetings or are in need of one-time assistance
to help you reach your academic goals, then stop by the Academic Success office today.
Located in Braniff, Room 116 and Braniff 122, assistance is available. Appointments
