Referring a Student to OLR

Why would you refer a student to us?

When a student...

  • tells you s/he is having a hard time juggling classes, social activities and work.
  • tells you s/he "studies all the time" but still isn't doing well on exams.
  • tells you reading for classes takes forever and s/he can't keep up with the amount of reading.
  • switched majors and is now having a hard time in class.
  • did really well in high school but failed or barely passed his/her first midterms
  • doesn't know how to take notes in classes.
  • has a research paper to write but doesn't know how to get started on it.
  • tells you that s/he wants to participate in class but doesn't know how.
  • actively participates in class but his/her exam grades do not reflect the student's efforts.

When would you refer a student to us?

  • Anytime during the semester but the earlier the better.
