Faculty, Instructors, and Student Advisors

The U of A Student Success Centre works with university faculty offices, individual instructors, and undergraduate/graduate advisors to connect students with professional academic support. Below are are some of the ways that you can connect your students with our services:

Student Referrals

If you have a student who is struggling academically or asking for help with academic skills, refer them to the U of A Student Success Centre. We assist undergraduate, graduate, and postdoctoral students at all achievement levels and in all programs on campus, whether they are struggling academically, worried about a particular academic skill, or simply wondering how to take their academic performance further. 

Where to Send Students for Academic SupportWe have developed a campus academic resource to help you decide which academic support you should refer students to. Check out "Where Do You Send Students for Academic Help?"

Please note that we are not subject-specific tutors. For subject-specific help, check the Students’ Union Tutor Registry or Math and Applied Sciences Resources (MASC).

Required Participation in Student Success Centre Services

Some programs/faculties may require students to complete specific Student Success Centre workshops, online non-credit eClass courses, or individual appointments as part of academic probation, academic warning, or the outcome of disciplinary action. If students are completing such requirements, we are able to report their activity completion to a faculty office/advisor. Please contact our office to discuss these options. Note that students are responsible for requesting that we release their personal information and completing required paperwork by specific deadlines.

Please contact our office by phone at 780-492-2682 or by email at success@ualberta.ca if you have any questions or would like to discuss details about how to connect your students with our services.
