Academic Resources

Cook Counseling Center is dedicated to aiding students in achieving a successful college career. While mental health and counseling services are our main focus, academic support for students is one of its top priorities.

In this capacity, the counseling center provides resources and referrals to workshops that focus on specific, academic related issues, such as stress management and test anxiety; and information on how to improve study skills, including time management tips and concentration techniques. We partner with the Student Success Center, Services for Students with Disabilities, and academic advisors to help students achieve success in the classroom.

Academic support covers many different aspects of academic success, but it also includes academic relief. Cook Counseling Center works with students whose college success has been hindered by mental illness or great mental stress. Students can find more information on academic relief by talking with their advisor.
