Is your student struggling academically?
The College at Brockport has several support mechanisms in place to help them out. As a parent, your encouragement to seek out the help they need is sometimes necessary.
There are several Academic Support Services available to students, regardless of their class year, academic major, credit hour status, campus residency status, age, etc.
The Student Learning Center offers assistance with math courses, a writing lab and tutoring for specific courses in several disciplines. They also offer helpful workshops on time management, test-taking and study skills, notetaking and more.
Your student's overall well-being
We realize your number one concern is that your student is healthy and happy. If they are not, we can help.
Please remember that college students are their own advocates, and should seek out these services on their own. That said, this information is provided so you can help them when they need a little.. well... nudge in the right direction.
Advocacy and Safety Services - Information about campus safety and University Police
- What you need to know about Health Insurance Requirements and Information for enrolling and current college students.
Attention parents: You are still a positive influence on the choices your college student makes regarding the use of Alcohol and Other Drugs! Read this important information from the US Department of Education.
