Student Success & Academic Support

Whether it's academic or personal, LR offers advising and academic support resources and services that will set you up for success.

All undergraduate and graduate students should take advantage of available academic advising, tutoring and coaching opportunities. You may think that you should only get help when you’re struggling, but we want you to know that's not the case.

You can choose from a variety of services designed to support your academic success. Support services include academic coaching sessions with professional staff, individual and/or group tutoring options with peer tutors who are trained and qualified to assist you and individualized assistance on a variety of topics that are essential for academic success.

  • Academic Advising
    Academic advising 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, including co-curricular activities, study abroad and internships. We provide general advising services to all first-year and new transfer students as well as academic coaching and support to any student in need.
  • Academic Coaching
    One-on-one academic coaching for students who need consistent, targeted academic support. Appointments usually last 30-60 minutes and focus on topics such as learning and study strategies, time management, organization, and goal setting. Working together with a coach, you both work to create and put in place more effective strategies than are the norm. The aim is to heighten awareness of what it takes to achieve academic success and anchor this with new strategies, a supportive relationship and personal accountability. There are no additional costs associated with these services. For an appointment, email us at
  • Individual Tutoring
    One-on-one tutoring assistance with a trained peer who has successfully completed the course and received professor recommendation.
  • Small Group Tutoring
    Tutoring assistance in a small group setting facilitated by a trained peer who have successfully completed the course and received professor recommendation.

As a transfer student, the counselors and professors have worked with me to decide what I wanted to major in and draw out a detailed map to help me reach that goal of getting a bachelor’s degree.
