The Office of Academic Accessibility and/or the Learning Center occasionally hosts sessions for students to help with certain skills that are crucial for student success, such as textbook skills, organizational skills, study skills, and test-taking skills. Students who believe they may lack some of these skills are encouraged to enroll in the study skills course offered each fall and/or seek help through an academic coach.
