Sometimes working harder isn’t enough to guarantee academic success. If you find there are never enough hours in a day or if you study for hours but still don’t know the material, then you may benefit from Academic Coaching, a series of personal meetings with a Learning Specialist to help you improve your skills and academic performance. Coaching sessions can help you manage your time, prepare for tests, improve study skills, and set academic goals.
The Peer Tutoring Program helps students who are having trouble with the content in a particular course. Peer tutors are students who have excelled in the course and they tailor their sessions to meet students’ individual needs. Peer Tutors are trained to offer support on course content in order to help the student better understand the material. Peer tutoring sessions are free for students.Peer Tutoring

Student Tech Support
The UAMS Student Success Center’s Tech Center is here for all students on campus. We focus on mobile device and laptop support. If you are having trouble with, or needing assistance in picking a new, mobile device or laptop, this is the place for you. Off campus help is available as well as long as you have an Internet connection. Just contact the Tech Center to set up a time that works.
If something happens to your laptop during an important assignment, you need to take a test, or just have a laptop for some personal reason and are planning to stay on campus, you should consider using our Laptop Lending service. With our laptops you can browse the internet, create presentations, and take tests anywhere on campus for free, provided you bring the laptops back at the end of the business day (6:00 P.M.)Laptop Lending
