Need to bump up your grades, qualify for a scholarship, or improve your academic standing? One-on-one appointments can help you improve the skills you need for academic success.
The first step toward academic improvement is recognizing that no one is stuck with a fixed level of academic ability. Everyone can learn to be a better learner. By attending regular one-on-one sessions with an academic development specialist, you’ll become more adept at:
Analyzing your academic tasks to determine the skills and resources required to complete them
Formulating strategies for completing academic tasks that also take into account your current strengths and weaknesses
Monitoring and controlling your progress on academic tasks
Adapting your strategies based on academic outcomes
Book with an Academic Development Specialist
Log in and use our Elevate portal to book an appointment with an advisor or sign up for a workshop.
This type of advising is available to any student taking UCalgary courses.
Academic development specialists don't provide you with a one-size-fits-all set of tools. Instead, they respond to your unique academic situation, strengths, weaknesses and goals. The more self-awareness you bring to an appointment, the more productive your session will be.
