The Kick Off: How Can I Plan for a Successful Semester?


Happy New Year and Welcome Back Tigers!

With so much excitement surrounding the National Championship game and our fellow Tigers (which was still an amazing game!), we want to make sure that our students are also excited about gearing up for a successful spring semester.

After all, we do want to CU Succeed!

Below we will provide helpful information and resources that could potentially benefit those who are in need of additional support.

Academic Support


I need personal assistance with study skills and setting academic goals, where can I go?

You’re in luck!

The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides personalized Academic Coaching and Counseling services.

The services Academic Coaches provide are as follows:

  • Regularly scheduled, one-on-one meetings
  • Assistance in organizing and planning your semester
  • Someone to keep you accountable to your academic plans
  • Help with specific academic issues (test-taking, time management, etc…)
  • Referral to other appropriate campus resources
