Student Referrals: Help a Zip


Help for students having personal or academic difficulties

College can be stressful for students as they balance academics with their lives outside of the classroom. If you are aware of someone in distress, or if you are in need of help, please use this page to let us know.

One of our caring student-support professionals will offer resources for assistance.

Help for students who are experiencing:

  • academic issues (missed assignments; poor grades on exams, assignments and projects; repeated absences from class, etc.),
  • mental health issues (depression, anxiety, substance dependence, etc.),
  • financial issues, and/or
  • personal problems (relationships, social contentedness, roommate compatibility, homesickness, etc.)
