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.
DAE's Academic Coaches, accredited by the National Tutoring Association, 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"
Resources for International Students
The DAE offers various Resources for International Students who are seeking assistance with writing and speaking. Writing tutoring is one of our most popular services for international students. Students can make appointments by clicking on Writing Center in TutorTrac and selecting either Graduate or Undergraduate, according to their student classification. ESL Conversation is an opportunity to meet with a native speaker of English to practice English conversation in groups of two or three individuals. Appointments can be made by clicking Peer Tutoring Program in TutorTrac and then selecting ESL Conversation.
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.
The Division of Academic Enhancement offers free Tutoring Services through the Academic Resource Center (ARC). At various ARC 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. The ARC provides tutoring in a variety of formats and services are free for all currently enrolled UGA students. ARC offices and the majority of tutoring services are located in Milledge Hall, but there are multiple opportunities to be tutored in other locations on campus including the Miller Learning Center, the Boyd Science Library, residence halls, Science Learning Center, and online.
