A student being helped in the Center for Academic Services

The Academic Services staff members serve as advisers to students who have not yet declared a major area of study and provide advice and guidance on academic requirements. They offer assistance with study skills and time management as well as utilizing early intervention strategies to guide students in need of support before it is too late. They offer assistance with adjustment to college, facilitate contacts with tutors in the Learning Center and Writing Center, and assist with referrals to other appropriate University resources.

Academic Services also coordinates Husson's First Year Experience course - the Husson Experience (HE 111) - a required, one-credit course designed specifically to assist first-year students in making successful transitions to college life. The Husson Experience facilitates knowledge of Husson's academic policies and procedures as well as the academic and social resources needed for success and engagement with the college community. Students also complete an in-depth career exploration project. The Husson Experience course is taught by faculty in each of the University's Schools/Colleges as well as Academic Services staff.

From developing faculty panels to assist students in exploring lesser known majors, to collaborating with career services to offer career exploration tools, to hosting mini-orientations specifically for students still exploring possible majors, Academic Services staff advises students every step of the way from registering for classes to declaring a major area of study.
Learning at the college level is different and there are better ways to get through coursework. Sometimes it really is, "Study smarter, not harder," and Academic Services staff is here to guide students' efforts.
