U-Turn For Academic Success

A four week program aimed at helping students who aren’t happy with how their semester is progressing academically.  Some of the topics that will be covered include:

  •  effective reading and study skills
  •  time management
  •  test preparation and test-taking skills
  •  stress management and test anxiety
  •  staying motivated
  •  overcoming procrastination

The program runs for 4 weeks (1 session per week). 

The Jump Start program is an accelerated program that meets twice on back-to-back Fridays (2 sessions on the same day). Parts 1 and 2 are the first week, parts 3 and 4 the second week.

Participants will benefit the most by attending ALL four sessions!

It's not too late to get the grades that you want/need. 

Seating is limited to 30 students.

Registration for the program is required.

Dates:  Spring 2015
