We offer free one-to-one Study Skills Counseling to Wayne State University's undergraduate population. Our Specialists will analyze your current study habits and work with you to create a customized, evidence-based plan for success. We offer assistance in the following areas:

  • Improve your test-taking abilities/preparation strategies 
  • Prevent and overcome test-anxiety 
  • Reduce your study time by learning more efficient study strategies 
  • Better manage your time in both school and personal life
  • Master your textbooks/course material
  • Improve your concentration in lecture and during study time
  • Optimize your ability to process, retain, and retrieve course information
  • Prevent and manage stress

Due to current campus restrictions, Study Skills Counseling will be facilitated virtually until further notice.
