Academic Success Workshops

OAS coordinates a series of workshops that are offered fall, spring and summer B semesters.  In collaboration with our campus partners, we offer interactive sessions that provide information and learning strategies to help students develop skills and attributes needed to be successful in college.   Workshops are coordinated by OAS student staff and  we encourage student participants to provide feedback on topics that they have found most helpful.  We want to include additional topics that may not be offered currently .  Faculty and staff are also welcomed to suggest or present on topics or learning strategies that may assist students in a particular UF course or subject. 

AIM students are required to attend 4 workshops per semester during their first three semesters and should be aware of all policies regarding failure to meet this requirement. Therefore, it is important that AIM students log-in to the AIM e-learning site to sign-up.   Students must also sign-in at the beginning of the workshop to earn credit.
