Academic Support provides assistance to help Sierra Nevada University students achieve their full potential, both while they are SNU students, and after they graduate. We are particularly focused on developing the campus-wide core theme of Professional Preparedness, which is defined as intellectual flexibility and habits of mind that will prepare students for a lifetime of meaningful work in a constantly changing, diverse global environment. To help us meet this goal, we offer the following programs:
