Virtual Academic Support During COVID-19
Appointments are available via Zoom (or phone). Topics that may be addressed during academic advising include: writing consultations, reading & note-taking skills, study strategies, time & task management, testing strategies, motivation, stress management, and more!
"From yoga in the courtyard to great study spaces in the Academic Success Center, there are lots of resources and events that make it clear the College is always looking out for our best interests."
The Academic Success Center resides within the Office of the Provost, providing academic support for all of the College’s educational programs. The ASC provides study spaces, as mentioned above, but also offers academic workshops and individual support appointments with students, designed to improve their academic skills, such as study strategies, writing abilities, time management, goal setting, reading comprehension, and more.
The circulation desk is located on the second floor of the DeBakey Building (M208). While the ASC is open 24/7, an assistant will be available to help with checking out materials and general tech support 7 days a week during the operating hours posted within the space.
Texas Medical Center librarians are available at the ASC Circulation desk from 1 to 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. The librarians can assist you with literature searches, navigating the different databases available through the TMC Library, and identifying the appropriate resources for any specific research needs you may have. TMC Librarians are also available to meet with you one-on-one as needed. In order to schedule a consultation with one of the TMC Liaisons, simply complete this form.
"The Academic Success Center has been amazing in terms of having an objective third party to help with study plans and gain perspective from someone outside the program."
