Academic Support

Academic Support contributes to retention and degree completion for Auburn University undergraduate students. It provides a variety of academic skill development programs that promote self-directed learning strategies and student success.

Academic Coaching: Academic Coaching is a personalized program empowering students to achieve their academic goals through improved study strategies and habits. Students collaborate with a trained coach to progress in areas of academic workload management, time management, testing, and more.

Plainsmen’s Prep: Plainsmen’s Prep is a 10-day experience for eligible incoming first-year students. The program provides an opportunity for participants to increase their initial math course placement as dictated by their math ACT/SAT score, bypassing prerequisite courses and supporting timely graduation.

Study Partners: Peer tutoring, by students who have excelled in the course, is offered for all undergraduates through the Study Partners program. Peer tutors encourage students to become independent learners through one-on-one and drop-in tutoring for a number of undergraduate core courses.

Study Smart: Study Smart is a non-credit, 10-week course for students on suspension that focuses on the skills required for academic success at Auburn University. The course guides students through an exploration of their responsibilities, motivation, self-awareness, and tools to maintain success.

Supplemental Instruction (SI): The Supplemental Instruction (SI) program supports historically difficult classes with weekly active-review sessions facilitated by students who previously excelled in the course. SI sessions are interactive opportunities to improve content knowledge, develop skills, and make peer connections.
