    • Drop Ins are with trained undergraduate academic coaches! Academic Coaching drop-in hours are an opportunity for students to meet individually with an academic coach for assistance with time management, exam preparation, study skills, and more….  The Center’s IN PERSON drop in hours for the semester are:

    • Website Chat Feature is at the bottom of almost every webpage of our website.
      • Students can chat with an academic coach if they have a question and get an immediate answer during our drop in hours. 
      • If a student sends something outside of normal business hours, we have the ability to reply when an academic coach is on shift again.
    • Student Success Workshops are offered 2 – 3 times a week, and are hosted by Storrs and Hartford academic coaches. 
    • Supplemental Instruction is also happening in person and hosted at regularly scheduled times. Students should check their HuskyCT and email for specific course information.
