Study Tip: Ask for Help 

For various reasons, many students are reluctant to ask for help when they are struggling in their courses. You don’t have to struggle through difficult material alone though! It’s in your best interest to ask for assistance when you are having a hard time with your learning and assignments. Identify areas where you are having difficulty and seek help from your instructor, program advisor, student success officer, or other support staff… such as a librarian! They can help you stay on track.
