Academic Engagement and Student Success

Welcome to Academic Engagement and Student Success

University-level coursework can often be challenging, and most students need assistance at some point in their studies. The Center for Student Engagement provides a variety of opportunities for students who want to strengthen their academic performance overall or in one specific course. Academic engagement and advising services are offered—free of charge—to undergraduate students.

Virtual Meetings

Virtual academic engagement and advising sessions are offered through the Microsoft Teams application. Student success coaching and some individual tutors are also offering in-person sessions. NOTE: All access to virtual sessions will be done through your NPU account.

One-on-one Tutoring
