Academic Support Center

The ELH Academic Support Center offers both drop-in and appointment-based services tailored to meet the diverse needs of college students. Our dedicated team provides comprehensive support, including general advising, assistance, and referrals to various campus services. While students are expected to schedule meetings with their academic advisor or undergraduate program coordinator for personalized guidance on course selection and career pathways, our knowledgeable staff is ready to assist. Whether it’s assisting students with a leave of absence or processing a change of major, we are here to ensure every student’s academic journey is supported and successful.
