Services Overview

Academic Counseling

As an SMU student, you can work with one of the A-LEC's Learning Specialists to develop a personal system for managing time, tests, and texts. 

You can take the LASSI (Learning and Study Strategies Inventory) to gain a sense of your individual strengths and weaknesses in areas such as motivation, information processing, and test preparation.

You can learn to employ and benefit from organizational tools such as the "Semester At a Glance" planner, the "Time Awareness" grid, the "Anticipating and Planning For Courses" outline, and the "Finals Preparation" battle plan. 

You can also just come in to talk with people who care about you and how you're doing.  To request an appointment, visit https://roomres.smu.edu/, and select Altshuler Learning Enhancement Center, or call 214-768-3648.
