Resources for Academic Advisors

The Division of Academic Enhancement provides important resources for University students. This page serves as a quick reference for Academic Advisors regarding the DAE. Advisors are encouraged to refer students to DAE for a wide range of academic support services.

Academic Coaching

DAE's Academic Coaches, accredited by Inside Track, stand ready to assist students as they confront the rigors of academic coursework, emphasizing the importance of critical thinking, emotional intelligence, metacognition, cultural intelligence, academic self-awareness, and more. These are one-on-one, individualized sessions for students seeking continued support post-advisement. Advisor referrals should be made through SAGE. Students can view coach's calendars and make appointments under student's "My Success Network" in SAGE: Division of Academic Enhancement under "Other Services".

Student Success Workshops

Student Success Workshops are offered by the DAE each fall and spring semester. These research-based sessions provide a comfortable environment where students can feel free to ask questions and engage with academic coaches, mentors, and peers on a wide range of issues like managing stress, understanding metacognition, selecting a mentor, and working with faculty. Semester schedules can be viewed at the Workshops page as well as at the DAE Calendar.

Peer Tutoring

The Division of Academic Enhancement offers free Peer Tutoring through PLaTO. At various locations, UGA students can meet with peers who have successfully completed the course being tutored to discuss class content, ask questions, and share study tips and resources. All tutors, as well as the tutoring program as a whole, are accredited through the College Reading and Learning Association which recognizes effective approaches to student learning.
