The Study Consulting Program helps undergraduate students strengthen their academic skills, adjust to the increased demands of college, or fulfill their potential. Since its launch in 1985, the program has consistently helped dedicated and hard-working students improve their academic standing.

Study consulting pairs undergraduate students with an accomplished junior, senior or graduate student who serves as a consultant. The student-consultant pair meets for one hour every week and works on universal academic skills such as:

  • Time management
  • Organization
  • Note taking
  • Writing papers
  • Heavy reading loads
  • Test anxiety
  • Test preparation
  • Where to study
  • Self-discipline
  • “Backward planning”
  • Study skills
