Student Academic Services offer professional one on one Academic Support that is available
to all Skidmore students. SAS serves students interested in strengthening their academic
performance and offers assistance in developing a wide range of academic skills and
practices. Students are welcome to meet individually with professional staff for
one-on-one support. These meetings are meant to meet the needs of each individual
student and often focus on improving problem solving and time management skills, exploring
test taking strategies, strengthening note taking skills, and offering guidance regarding
specific assignments. One on one support is available as needed for students at all
levels free of charge.
SAS staff members are also available to students to help adjust to college life, transition into Skidmore community, and manage academic schedules. SAS staff members assist students to address questions about living with roommates, working with faculty members following absences or missed deadlines, time management, and navigating academic demands and personal stressors. While SAS consultations and support will typically focus on students' academic lives and goals, staff members in SAS can also help students connect with other relevant campus resources including the Counseling Center, Spiritual Life, and Health Services.
