Academic Support Programs

Study Skills

Our Study Skills program is six one-hour sessions, four one-hour sessions during Summer, designed to address core skills essential for academic success. Our trained facilitators are advanced students who understand the demands of college and how to balance recreation with academics. The sessions address procrastination, time management, taking class notes, test-taking strategies etc. We offer over 15-20 classes a week so that we can promise students a class that will fit into their schedules.

To make certain that our program is effective we have collected data on the performance of those students who have participated. We can say without any hesitation that students who attended our Study Skills program dramatically improved their study habits as well as improving their GPA.

 

HOW IT WORKS: Choose to attend either Series I, Series II or Late Start, choose one day, then one time. You will come to the SAM Center on this day and time for each of the 6, 4 durings the Summer, dates listed.
