Academic Achievement

UNCW offers students a variety of exciting educational opportunities. However, many students find themselves under-prepared for the demands of university life. In keeping with the University Learning Center’s mission to foster independent learning and transferable skills, Academic Achievement Services provides students with training and support for skills such as time management, note-taking, and test preparation so that students can make the most of what UNCW has to offer.
