Help is available for students with academic or personal issues
College can be stressful for students as they balance academics with their lives outside of the classroom.
The University has a team of professionals ready to help students experiencing:
- academic issues (missed assignments; poor grades on exams, assignments and projects; repeated absences from class, etc.),
- mental health issues (depression, anxiety, substance dependence, etc.),
- financial issues, and/or
- personal problems (relationships, social contentedness, roommate compatibility, homesickness, etc.)
For students with a funding gap, help is available
If a student mentions that he or she is struggling to close a funding gap, please encourage a prompt visit or call to the Office of Student Financial Aid.
“We can take a second look at a student’s eligibility for assistance,” says Jennifer Harpham, director of student financial aid. “Sometimes we are able to identify additional funding resources or other options available to the student.”
