Request a Consultant

The Study Consulting Program helps undergraduate students strengthen their academic skills, adjust to the increased demands of college, and fulfill their academic potential. Study consultants are not tutors, but will help you with academic skills that will help you in all courses.

Ideally, we like students to enter the program at the beginning of the semester. However, students may make intake appointments and are accepted into the program at any time!

How Consultations Work

You will be expected to meet with your consultant one hour each week and try different strategies and techniques until you discover the ones that work best for you. We recommend being open to your consultant’s suggestions, but you are not required to follow them.

If you are unable to commit to weekly, hour-long sessions, then please see information below about our Study Consulting Express program.

Personalized Consultations

If you are a first-year student, we ask that you use our Study Consulting Express program (see below) for the first three weeks of the fall semester. First-year students may book intake appointments with the program director beginning Monday, September 19th, 2022.

To obtain an individual study consultant for the semester:

  • The first step is to make an intake appointment with the program director, Dr. Sharleen Argamaso. Intake meetings take 20-30 minutes. To schedule an appointment, please visit Dr. Argamaso’s MS Bookings calendar.
  • When you make your appointment, you will receive a link to our intake form. Please complete this form prior to your intake meeting, we will use it to discuss your study habits and expectations of the Study Consulting Program.

As a participant in the program, you commit to meeting with your consultant on a weekly basis.

What if I find the program is not for me?

Not a problem! Simply send an email to the program director and your assigned consultant saying that you wish to exit the program.
