The Student Counseling Center on the campus of our sister institution, UT Tyler, provides screening for learning disabilities, attention disorders, and learning styles. It also makes referrals for additional testing and evaluation when appropriate. The center guides students through the processes involved in requesting accommodations for an identified physical or learning disability. Students can set up an appointment by contacting the Student Counseling Center directly or through referral from the Office of Academic Administration.
Tutoring services are available 24/7 on an individual basis through tutor.com to students at no cost. Small-group tutoring is available as well for those students experiencing academic difficulty. Tutoring sessions are led by experts who are familiar with course content. Tutoring is proactive and encourages participation from the outset of a course rather than subsequent to academic difficulty. Students can access the tutor.com platform through the Student Resource Module in their Moodle account.
Students are assigned an academic advisor who is a member of the faculty that will help them craft an individual degree plan that meets the requirements for graduation, but provides the focus that connects students to intended career outcomes through careful development of practicum, internship, capstone and other independent projects. Students can contact their academic advisor directly or through referral from the Office of Academic Administration.
