Student Success Advisors
Our Student Success Advisors are the first stop for students searching for resources on any aspect of their student life. Advisors direct students to resources for academic help, support with adjusting to life in a new environment, mental health and wellness resources and any other relevant topics. ICM regularly conducts workshops for students, such as how to budget and manage your finances to tenant rights and responsibilities. There is a large array of advice and resources available each term. You can find out about what is coming up in the Events Calendar.
If you are looking for peer tutoring support, ICM has an amazing program provided through Student Leadership called the Peer Education program. In this program, peers who have taken certain academic subjects and performed exceedingly well in them are available to tutor you in your courses. This tutoring help is free and is a great support if you need extra help with a certain subject. This is a program for students, by students.
