Academic Support Services

CSTEP Counseling Connections

Every student enrolled in CSTEP meet with program staff at least three times per semester, with the initial meeting held within the first couple of weeks of the semester, followed by the second meeting after midterm grades, and a third meeting the just before finals. Additional meetings are scheduled, as necessary, throughout the semesters. Topics typically range from academics to campus engagement, college adjustment, connectivity and career preparation.

Tutorial Assistance and Study Groups

Connect with a student tutor individually or in group setting to improve your understanding of assignments and classroom notes to improve your performance on quizzes and exams. Work with and learn from other students who have successfully completed the courses where you are seeking support.

Academic Success Workshops

Explore essential study skills including time management, test taking strategies, note taking and textbook reading, to name a few. Learn how to incorporate these and other study skills into your daily habits. 

Peer Mentoring

CSTEP participants are connected with an upperclassman mentor once enrolled in the Summer Transition Program. Student mentors help first-year and transfer students navigate the campus community and ease transition to college life.

Student Research

Discuss research options and how to get involved with a research project. There are also chances to present at the Annual CSTEP Statewide Student Conference and elsewhere throughout the US, where funding to attend is available.
