for reminder emails or just to tell us you're interested

The College Success Program (CSP) helps students master college-level academic skills and develop good study and time-management habits. The program is open to all undergraduates and is especially helpful for students who are making the transition to college, students who need to improve their academic performance, and students looking to get the most out of their studies.

In eight weekly small-group workshops, undergraduate advisors guide students through hands-on exercises to help build skills that can be immediately applied in lectures, assignments, and exams. Attend all eight workshops to see the most improvement, or attend the workshops you think will help you most. Drop-in help is also available each week.
