Academic Services - Overview
The Student-Athlete Academic Services Office offers many resources for student-athletes to ensure that our student-athletes are succeeding in the classroom. The educational support provided gives our student-athletes the tools and skills they need in order to meet their goals beyond their sport and the classroom. The Student-Athlete Academic Service staff works closely with student-athletes and faculty advisors on academic counseling, academic mentoring, degree and NCAA eligibility monitoring, assessment, tutoring, skill development, academic workshops and life skill development.
The mission of the Office of Student-Athlete Academic Services is to enhance the collegiate experience of the UAlbany student-athletes by providing an environment that assists them in developing transferable skills so that they may be better in prepared to compete the classroom, the athletic arena, as well as life. It is our belief that athletics serve as a tremendous enhancement to the higher education experience and that student-athletes can better compete in the classroom due to the lessons they have learned through the experiences of athletic competition.
Our goal is to ensure that the student-athlete has a well-rounded college experience both in the classroom and in their sport. We aim to provide all the tools each student-athlete needs to succeed academically, socially, and personally.
