Academic Help Services

The college experience can be overwhelmingly wonderful, or just overwhelming at times.  The School of Education provides specialized assistance to candidates through the academic advisement services provided in each department.  If you are having academic difficulties, you should see your assigned personal academic advisor as soon as possible.  In addition, Associate Dean Barbara Garii has overall responsibility for assisting education students in academic difficulty.  For more information, contact Candy Rasbeck, Secretary to the Associate Dean (201 Culkin Hall, 315-312-2103).
