  • Return to good academic standing

Academic Advising

Academic advising at LRU centers on the creation of an educational plan that reflects your own unique interests, abilities, goals, and values. This plan includes both the coursework required for your degree and learning opportunities and experiences beyond the classroom such as co-curricular activities, study abroad, and internships.

The Office of Student Success provides general advising services to all first-year and new transfer students as well as academic coaching and support to any student in need.

Our advising services help students:
  • Explore their academic interests and choose a major
  • Develop plans to reach their academic, personal, and career goals
  • Connect with resources on campus and beyond

Academic Coaching

We offer free academic coaching by appointment. Coaching is for students who need consistent, targeted academic support. Appointments usually last thirty minutes to one-hour and focus on topics such as: learning and study strategies, time management, organization, and goal setting. For an appointment, email us at: student.success@lr.edu.

Probation & Academic Recovery

The Office of Student Success offers workshops and individual coaching for students on academic warning and probation in order to help them recover from past academic difficulties, return to good academic standing, and achieve academic success.

If you are on academic probation, we can help you get back on track by:
  • Providing an accurate assessment of your current situation
  • Partnering with you to develop a personally relevant academic plan
  • Promoting your success
