Tiger Family Resource Hub: Student Academic Success
Student success is our top priority at UofM. Your student has many resources available to help, no matter where they are in their academic journey.
Deciding on a Major or Career Path
Your student’s advisor can help them explore options for their academic journey.
Your student can also connect with Career Services. Career Services can help your student find a major or program that fits with their personality traits and goals. There are various assessments for students to discover strengths and potential career paths. If your student is deciding on a major, they can chat with a career specialist in the main office or in their major about options.
Tutoring @ESP provides academic assistance for classes that students are currently taking at the UofM. ESP free services are available to graduate and undergraduate students. Tutoring is offered both on campus at one of our Educational Support Program Centers and online.
Disability Resources for Students

Students must register with Disability Resources for Students to arrange any needed accommodations.
The Center for Writing and Communication is a combined writing and speaking center that offers free, one-on-one consultations with a trained staff comprised of graduate students from the departments of English and Communication.
Whether your student is working on a paper, presentation, or speech, the Center can help them brainstorm topics, develop a thesis, build their argument, help with research, organize their writing, develop editing strategies, and implement standard citation conventions. If they are delivering a speech, they can also practice in the presentation studio.
Faculty members often make time during the week to be available for students outside of the classroom. This is known as ‘office hours’. Office hours allow your student to meet one-on-one with faculty to ask questions or express concerns.
Attending office hours and getting to know faculty can also offer additional opportunities, like research projects or internships.
