About the Academic Action Program

  • Analyze your strengths and learn how to apply those strengths in your courses.
  • Develop strategies specific to your learning and study needs.
  • Develop an Academic Action Plan to manage your time, study effectively, or prepare for midterms.
  • Learn how to balance academics with all the other parts of your life more effectively.
