Empowering You For Academic Success

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.

Student Success


Lenoir-Rhyne is committed to the success of our students as whole persons. Every office and area shares in this mission. The role of the Office of Student Success is to shore up institutional efforts, strengthen outcomes and directly assist you in navigating your student journey from orientation through graduation and beyond.

Academic Advising 


Academic advising is focused on the development of a plan to achieve a degree 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.

The Advising Center provides general advising services to all first-year and exploratory students as well as success coaching and helps with academic planning to any student in need.  The Advising Center is open for drop-in appointments Monday-Friday from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. We are located Suite 204 on the second floor of the Rudisill Library.

Academic Probation & Recovery     


The Office of Student Success offers workshops and individual coaching for all students who are not in good academic standing in order to help you recover from past academic difficulties, return to good academic standing and achieve academic success.

The Academic Recovery Program is required for students during your first semester of probation. The program includes: developing an academic plan, meeting regularly with an assigned advisor and attending a series of academic success workshops.

University Care Team


The care team is a group of faculty and staff from across the university who work collaboratively to provide intervention, resources and assistance to undergraduate students who are struggling with university life and have been referred by one or more persons or offices.

The purpose of the team is to provide a second line of support to students, including those who have not been responsive to initial outreach. Members of the team include representatives from the faculty, health and counseling services, student life, campus ministry, multicultural affairs, athletics and student success.
