Need help?
Start Here.


Achieving a degree in the College of Science can be challenging. Faculty and staff are here to help you succeed!

Below are some services that are intended to empower students to succeed in their course content and develop transferable skills to help them in their academic careers.

Top 5 tips from College of Science advisors:


1. Go to class – and participate.
Class attendance actually does affect your grade. Exams are sometimes based on lectures and not chapters of the book, so it is important to be present in class. Also, instructors will sometimes make important announcements during class pertaining to assignments and exams.

2. Learn how to take notes.
The Learning Center can help you improve on note-taking strategies. Develop good study habits by reviewing your notes often, and writing down questions you have to address with the instructor.

3. Utilize a planner or electronic calendar.
Time management is critical to becoming a successful student. Write down deadlines for items that involve classes, study time, campus activities, and work obligations. Here is the University of Utah’s Academic Calendar for important dates for registration, finals, etc.

4. Don’t be afraid to ask for help – and don’t wait until it’s too late.
Reach out to instructors, TAs, and LAs during their office hours to get help with assignments and other issues relating to the class. Make an appointment with an advisor, and utilize the tutoring resources below!

5. Don’t give up!
We know college can be hard, and life often throws additional challenges your way. You can do this, and we are here to help.
