  • Students can meet weekly with an Academic Mentor.
  • Academic Mentor can give students tips for completing assignments in a timely manner, making study calendars, motivation, etc.

•When should I (or my student) make my study schedule?
  • Usually during the first week of class after a student has received all of their course syllabi.
  • This way students can make a weekly study calendar and make a semester on a page where they mark when test, paper, projects, etc. are due.
•My student struggles with motivation and procrastination? Can they meet with someone weekly to help them stay on top of their coursework, etc.?
  • Yes! Signing up for an Academic Mentor would be a great way for students to meet with an experienced graduate student that can help them stay accountable throughout the semester.
•What’s the difference between an Academic Consultation and an Academic Mentor?
  • An Academic Consultation is with a Professional ASP Staff member.
  • These meetings are usually a one-time meeting for 30 minutes to an hour and will cover specific academic concerns (e.g., note-taking tips, how to study for a specific type of exam, time management, etc.).

  • Academic Mentoring is designed for students to work with an assigned Academic Mentor (graduate students) each week for 30 minutes.
  • Academic Mentors have weekly guides and agendas to help students as they approach various academic hurdles (e.g., first round of tests, test anxiety, procrastination, time management, preparing for finals, etc.).
