Study skills instruction is available in many different areas. Please refer to the main Academic Skills page for the different areas.
Hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. (Mon. – Fri.) and also by appointment.
Study skills and academic enhancements programs are open to all Susquehanna students at any time during their college career.
There is no cost to enrolled Susquehanna University students.
Any student can make an appointment with the academic specialist by calling (570) 372-4488 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. A student can also come to the office located in Fisher Hall, 2nd floor.
Often, the underlying cause of struggle in a particular class is weak study skills. We will assist with study skills first and then, if needed, recommend a subject-based tutor.
Depending on what you need to discuss, the length of an appointment will vary for each individual and last as long as you need it to. The average length of a meeting is 15– 20 minutes, but there is no set time limit.
Depending on the situation, if faculty or staff members come to us with legitimate concerns about a particular student, we may talk with them. Instructors are usually supportive of students who seek assistance outside of class, but if you would prefer that we not reveal that you've sought our help with academic skills, please tell us and we will respect your wishes.
