The school and university offer several resources and services to help our students succeed academically. If you feel like you are starting to fall behind, you should seek advisement immediately.
If you are having trouble in any course:
Accessibility Resources coordinates reasonable accommodations for equitable access to UB for students with disabilities. If you are in serious academic trouble due to extenuating circumstances, talk with Professor Fiebelkorn regarding possible Administrative Withdrawal and Leave of Absence options.
Time management is important for success and involves goal setting, organizing, planning, conserving time and resources, and maintaining peak efficiency.
You may need to cut back on the number of hours you are working or how much time you are dedicating to student organizations and other extracurricular activities. Don't skip class!
Identify your learning style to succeed academically. Studying might be best accomplished by doing so in different ways, including in groups and by putting material into a form they can best absorb. It may be useful for students to take a learning style assessment to determine how they might alter study material to study more effectively.
You should study over sustained periods of time, rather than in short cramming sessions. Review material regularly.
Make sure you stay on track and successfully complete all requirements. You may also benefit from additional programs, such as dual/collaborative degrees or micro-credential programs. Talk with your advisor about your options.
There are several libraries on campus to study in. As a PharmD student, you'll have access to some free books for required courses.
If you are experiencing communication trouble, we have resources available to you including special faculty advisement and an elective course. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
