Help Students Help Themselves

Students engage in problematic behaviors because of:

  • Health problems
  • Personal or family problems
  • Adjustment or developmental issues
  • General academic difficulties


These factors are not controllable, but instructors who believe these issues may be at play should refer students to the appropriate services.

If you have a serious, non-academic concern about a student, contact our office for assistance. If you have an academic concern, please contact the Office of Retention and Advising.
