Mental Health Support

If you’re feeling anxious or stressed out about school or your personal life, our Counseling and Consultation Services staff is well-trained to listen and provide support.

Academic Assistance

If you’re struggling with the content of a course, a good first step is to contact your professor. You can talk with them after class, send them an email or meet with them during office hours.

Your academic advisor is another great resource. They can help you set goals, understand academic requirements and guide you in course selection. Schedule an appointment with them every semester using the Navigate Student app.
