Academic counseling addresses an individual's academic performance and the quality of their academic experience at the University of West Georgia. The primary focus of this service is to help each student reach his or her academic and career goals.

During Academic Counseling, students will, with the assistance of the counselor, identify those areas and skills in need of improvement. Academic counseling may consist of a single session or may consist of multiple meetings over a number of weeks. When the student feels s/he has gained the needed skills, s/he can stop individual academic counseling. Some of the frequently addressed areas are:

  • Adjustment to The University of West Georgia
  • Learning Styles
  • Memory Techniques
  • Stress Management
  • Study Strategies
  • Test Taking Skills
  • Test Anxiety
  • Time Management
  • Writing Research Papers

For issues beyond the scope of Academic Counseling, referrals can be made to other services, such as Personal Counseling and Assessment for Learning Disabilities.
