Academic Strategies Program

The Academic Strategies Program (A.S.P.) aims to provide individualized strategy instruction that assists students in understanding how they gain knowledge, while helping them develop flexibility in their learning through guided coaching of cognitive and meta-cognitive strategies. Cognitive strategies are specific sets of steps to enable learning and comprehension of concepts. Meta-cognitive strategies are a master plan for all types of solution-seeking, based on individual learning strengths and needs. A.S.P. is available only to students registered with Accessibility Resources who have received a referral from their Accessibility Advisor.

Who Would Benefit from the Program

  • Someone who experiences challenges with study skills, exam anxiety, test-taking skills, note-taking, information processing, memory, identifying main ideas and details, reading, and/or writing

  • Someone who has difficulty self-regulating learning tasks such as time management, motivation, concentration, planning, goal setting, and/or task analysis
