  • Academic Support at UNC Charlotte:
    The University Center for Academic Excellence (UCAE) at UNC Charlotte works to promote student success through services such as one-on-one tutoring, supplemental instruction, and study skills workshops.  Some students may learn best by working one-on-one with an individual tutor, while others learn best in a group setting.  Some students may prefer to utilize tutorial software yet others will achieve success by attending supplemental instruction sessions to review complex information.  Through workshops or individual assessments, UCAE staff members help students find the learning support that works best for their individual success.  In addition, students can learn the strategies necessary for college survival, such as; test taking skills, time management, study skills, and stress and anxiety management.  Students are encouraged to begin utilizing the UCAE early in the semester.  For more information on the services offered at the University Center for Academic Excellence, please visit their website at
