Academic Support Resources

Are you struggling with your academic commitments? Depending on your situation, there may be specific academic supports that can be considered.

As indicated in the University Calendar for Academic Consideration, "documentation" is required whenever psychological/emotional grounds are identified as the primary reason for academic difficulties.

Counsellors cannot guarantee that letters of academic support will be written as each case is individually assessed.

Letters of academic support are not provided from Drop-In Appointments (except in highly extenuating circumstances).

Additional Academic Resouces: 

The University of Guelph Library offers several free resources to help students succeed academically. Learn study skills, meet with course-specific study groups, or meet with a program counsellor to get started on the right foot.
