Assistance in Mastering Studies (AIMS)
Students who do not meet normal admissions criteria, or who need additional academic support during their freshman year, are accepted into the Assistance in Mastering Studies program. These students are not enrolled into a formal program of study during that freshman year. Each student is closely advised by the program advisor. The goal of AIMS is to strengthen the students’ academic skills so that they are able to begin one of the University’s formal programs of study. The AIMS program is typically one year long although a third semester can be required by the AIMS advisor.
For one-on-one help with academic writing and assignments, students can visit the Writing Lab, located in the Academic Resource Center.
Writing Lab Semester Hours
The Masland Library houses a wide collection of books, reference works, periodicals, CDs, DVDs, and other electronic media via the library website. The library also offers two computer labs, a curriculum lab for Education majors, and a writing lab available for use by all students.
