Academic Vital Signs

OFFICE HOURS: Monday – Thursday: 8:00am to 5:00pm Friday: 8:00am to 3:00pm

Academic Vital Signs

Embedded within each appointment is a well check on academic assessment, a program called Academic Vital Signs. If a student expresses academic concerns, they will meet with the Health Center at Auraria’s Academic Referral Coordinator to determine the most appropriate campus resource based on the student’s need. 

As a student the sooner an academic concern is addressed the more support you can get. If you know you may need additional support for an academic concern, reaching out to the appropriate office or person is helpful.

Below is an overview of available campus resources for Academic Assistance:

Faculty Member: Discuss additional needs for your class with the professor.
Department: Reach out to the department for additional guidance and recommendations.
Advising: Meet with an advisor to discuss your academic progress.
Tutoring Services: Schedule an appointment with a tutor for additional academic support.
Access Center: If accommodations are needed, contact your school’s Access Center
CARE Team: You can self-refer to the CARE Team if you need additional academic support.

If you need assistance in this process, you can contact the Health Center at Auraria and ask to speak with the Academic Referral Coordinator.
