Need Help with a Paper?

Struggling with a Class?

  1. Early action is the key.  Get help early in the semester, at the first sign of a problem.
  2. The first stop is the professor who teaches the class. Every professor has posted office hours when they are available to work one-on-one with students.
  3. If applicable, your teaching assistant for the class can review course material with you.
  4. Make an appointment to speak with your English and/or Arts and Humanities advisors, who can provide you with alternative course options, help you decide whether it's appropriate to withdraw from a course, and point you toward various campus resources.
  5. Take advantage of the numerous resources available to you at the University of Maryland:
