Featured Programs

Writing Services at the U of A

At the Academic Success Centre, we offer a variety of writing services. We work with all students, faculty, staff, and alumni – in any subject, discipline, program, or faculty, and at all levels of study.

We have friendly peer tutors available to help undergraduate students get ahead of assignment deadlines, brainstorm or get written and verbal feedback on a draft, or develop an effective writing routine. We also have professional writing advisors who work one-on-one with graduate students to help them revise course papers, articles for publication, thesis chapters, grant applications, and some specialized career documents.

Please email success@ualberta.ca for more information, or check out our website.

Learning and Communication Services at the U of A

Soft skills are not as soft as you think.

Succeeding at university means taking your old skills to a new level. You need to use new techniques to absorb vast quantities of material and engage with complex ideas. And you need to communicate effectively in new academic environments.

Whether you’re a first-year undergraduate or a seasoned doctoral candidate, the ASC can help you tackle these tasks strategically and confidently. Check out our website and workshops for more information on how you can succeed.

Academic Integrity

As straightforward as the concept of academic integrity might seem, it may carry different meanings for different people, vary from institution to institution, or vary from culture to culture. Students may also not bother to read the COSB; this is a dangerous assumption that can lead to an inadvertent rule violation.

Office of the Student Ombuds

The Office of the Student Ombuds is a confidential service that strives to ensure that university processes related to students operate as fairly as possible. We offer information, advice, and support to students, faculty, and staff as they deal with academic, discipline, interpersonal, and financial issues related to student programs.

Code of Student Behaviour

The University of Alberta places a very high value on academic integrity. Our Code of Student Behaviour (COSB) outlines what students are prohibited from doing, provides the rationale for those rules, and possible sanctions for violations.
