  • First access point for student questions regarding a financial crisis, mental or physical health concerns, housing issues, and more.
  • Peer advising and advising workshops.
  • Peer tutoring and exam workshops.
  • Study abroad information sessions and course planning.
  • Success guides for time management, study skills, goal planning, and more.

Academic Success Programs 

Students have access to additional academic support through Academic Success Programs. These programs strive to connect you to engaging opportunities, comprehensive programs, and other services early in each semester to help guide you to success.
Academic Success Programs focus on giving you personalized support through the following
and more:
  • Workshops
  • Early intervention
  • Personal counseling and mentoring opportunities
  • Specialized courses
  • Collaborative partnerships within Gies and across campus.

The specific programs include:

  • Early Intervention Course Outreach

Business Core Summer Program 

If you're an incoming Gies College of Business student who had limited opportunities to earn course credit during high school, the Business Core Summer Program is for you. 

This program helps students get their college career off to an early start and helps lessen the gap between students who had access to AP courses, Dual Credit, and IB courses – and those who didn’t.
