Academic Risk

Academic Risk Counseling

The Academic Risk unit reaches out to students who are struggling with their academic performance. We contact students who are identified as struggling academically and schedule them for an intake meeting, where we work with them to identify the issues that are holding them back. Students who are struggling with academic issues are referred to The American University in Cairo's (AUC) many and varied academic resources such as the tutoring center. Students continue to be supported throughout the semester for their non-academic issues through mental health counseling. 

For appointments with an Academic Risk counselor to address areas of difficulty, set a plan to meet individual needs, or follow up on progress, fill out the counseling request form.

We also provide students with the support of Well-Being Is Now (WIN) peer supporters, trained and experienced successful students who remain in regular contact with you, providing collegial advice and guidance on-campus resources and support networks to facilitate positive outcomes and healthier experiences at AUC.
