Welcome to Office of Academic Support and Career Counseling

The primary mission of Academic Support and Career Counseling (ASCC) is to enhance students' academic performance and personal well-being, promote student excellence, and advance students' career goals.

We serve as student advocates working with individual students in the areas of academic support and career counseling. Our goal is to prevent, identify and resolve academic or personal issues that may negatively affect a student's academic performance, personal health, and/or career development. Services are available to all School of Medicine students, MD and PA students, at no cost.
