Programs & Services
Full-time academic counselors are in charge of the academic supervision of assigned sports, providing direction and resources in a supportive, structured environment. Our counselors work with students on transition issues, stress management, time management, academic focus and problem resolution in a proactive manner. The staff provides academic support, registration assistance, eligibility information, supplemental instruction, and arranges for tutoring and referrals to other support services on campus. ASA Counselors are particularly aware of issues of transition, adjustment and retention for students of color, international students and women.
Tutoring is available to all student athletes. Our flexible tutorial program accommodates the varying schedules and needs of students. Individual and group tutoring allows for one-on-one work as well as collaboration within peer study groups.

In the Evening Study Program, Study Facilitators work closely with student athletes in a structured environment designed to develop quality study practices for each student. In this applied study assistance program, study facilitators assist with organization and time management and other techniques that contribute to student productivity and success.
