Student Success

We want our students to be successful both in their academic and professional career

If you're struggling or need to better hone your study skills, UTC's Center for Academic Support and Advisement may be of assistance to you.  Their mission is to promote academic excellence and facilitate student success.  They offer a variety of workshops designed to assist students, help provide referrals to campus resources, and promote the development of skills needed for academic success.  They can provide information on tutoring, study groups, note taking, learning styles, and test taking tips.

If you need some help with trying to figure out "what's next" once you graduate or just need someone to talk to, UTC's Counseling Center is available for all students.  The Counseling Center is a place where students can go to receive services designed to help handle day-to-day challenges while encouraging their personal growth and development.  Services provided by the Center include personal, career, and academic counseling as well as crisis intervention.  Services are confidential and offered by professionally trained counselors and psychologists.  Most services are free of charge, however, there is a minimal charge for testing.
