Welcome First Year Students!

We know the transition from high school to college can be a tricky one, and we’re here to help! Check out the video below for some great advice from some of our student leaders.

We're Here to Help!

We understand that the transition from face-to-face to an online learning environment can be a challenging one, but we at The Learning Center are here to support you through it. Here are a few suggestions to get you started on the road to success:

  • Learn about some of the changes you can expect to result from the transition from in-person to online instruction on this page.
  • Adapting to remote learning may require you to develop some new study strategies. Read our recommended strategies for remote learning. Additionally, check out our academic skills page to browse our resources, or meet with a staff member for personalized academic skills support.
  • Our academic mentors will continue to hold sessions to provide course-specific support. For more information about mentoring hours or how to join sessions, visit our “Get Help with Courses” page. Online mentoring will commence the week of September 21st.
  • Contact us via phone at 314-935-2066 or email us at learningcenter@wustl.edu M-F, 9-5 PM to ask about anything related to remote-learning technology, our mentoring programs, or academic skills support!


We support and enhance student’s academic transition as they develop skills/mindset to be independent learners inside and outside the classroom.   Our academic programs facilitate and encourage critical and reflective thinking, collaborative learning, student agency and academic mindset.
