Academic Support Programs
UAM offers various programs to maximize student success. All of the programs are FREE!
“Weevils at Work” is UAM’s student mentoring program. Student mentors are available to help any current UAM student. Mentors are a good resource for new students because they understand the demands of a student’s first year of college. Mentors are available during the fall and spring semesters.
The Career Services Center, located on the second floor of Harris Hall, provides services to assist students determining career and educational choices. Through both group and individual counseling, the Center tries to help students better understand themselves, their interests, and abilities.
Appointments are generally necessary for individualized assistance, while the Career Library, Employment Listings, and FOCUS programs are available on a drop-in basis from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
The Counseling and Testing Services office provides a wide variety of specialized counseling and testing services to prospective and current UAM students. All services are confidential in nature. Appointments can be made in person during the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday or by telephone. Walk-in counseling is also generally available to accommodate students in crisis or emergency situations.
