Academic Success Services

The mission of Academic Success is to help students succeed in their coursework and to encourage them to become self-motivated, independent, lifelong learners. We value the unique talents each student brings to DePauw, and we encourage students to develop these talents by understanding their own specific learning styles. We strive to make the Academic Success environment comfortable, accessible, and encouraging.

Academic Success assists students in developing individualized strategies in the areas of study skill development, time management, goal setting, organization, and prioritizing. We meet with students on an individual basis, or upon request, in small groups. Student organizations are welcome to make arrangements for group presentations. Presentation topics include, but are not limited to: 

• goal setting 

• test-taking strategies

• procrastination 

• time management 

• organization

Any DePauw University student can utilize Academic Success Services and are often referred by faculty, staff, or coaches. Students may benefit from our services if they:

 • Struggle with adjusting to the academic rigor of college
