Academic Support

Newnan Advising Center's Strategies for Success Website

Have you ever wondered how some students earn "A"s while you struggle, no matter how much time you spend studying? Do you feel that your grades don't reflect your academic potential? Many UM students believe that the "A" students receive high scores without a strong effort. In reality, students who earn high grades have developed or adapted their study strategies to meet the rigors of college coursework. You can do the same. Use the information on the Newnan Center's Strategies for Success website to develop your personal study strategies plan.

Academic Standing

Academic Standards Board advisors provide guidance and support to students who are encountering difficulty in making progress toward degree requirements.

Learning Resource Centers and Tutoring

Michigan's size is an advantage for undergraduates: Not only does it mean you have access to top professors in a wide variety of academic programs, it also means we have the resources to offer you unparalleled support services. Our Learning Centers aren't just for students who think they need help; they're for students who want to get ahead and simply improve the quality of their work.

Students with Disabilities

Services for Students with Disabilities (SSD) provides services to students with visual impairments, learning disabilities, mobility impairments, or hearing impairments. SSD also works with students who have chronic health or mental health conditions. SSD offers services which are not provided by other University offices or outside organizations. SSD provides such services as accessible campus transportation, adaptive technology, sign language interpreting, guidance for course accommodations, and more, all free of charge.

Before and after a student enrolls at the University, SSD is available to answer questions or provide referrals concerning admission, registration, services available, or financial aid. In addition, SSD can help assess the need for modified housing, attendants, interpreters, transportation, classroom accommodations, note-takers, or adaptive equipment.

Testing Accommodation Center

The LSA Testing Accommodation Center (TAC) serves the College by providing reasonable testing accommodations to students with verified disabilities who are enrolled in LSA courses. By creating an appropriate space for completing exams, the Testing Accommodation Center aims to make education accessible for students with verified disabilities. TAC’s mission is to serve both students and instructors through a well-defined process that ensures confidentiality and test security.
