Academic Support

When you need help, contact us. Our staff and advisors are always happy to help you succeed in college.

Additionally, we’ve found these sites to be helpful for many students :

Learning Support Services : UMA’s Learning Support Services Department exists to help their students develop the skills and find the resources they need to get the most out of college, and successfully achieve their educational goals.  If you are taking a course from a campus other than UMA and require learning support services, contact us for assistance.

Disability Services :  If you have documented disabilities which require special accommodations, please set up a time to meet with an advisor so arrangements can be made to make your educational experience easier.

Tutoring : Don’t let your classes get away from you. If you are struggling, check with the office about tutoring, available for 100-level writing, math, computing, and biology classes.

Online course support: Find out how to success in that online course you’ve just registered for, or inform yourself about online learning at University College’s Steps to Successful Online Learning.
