Q: My student sometimes struggles with time management. How can Academic Enhancement help?

A:Academic Enhancement can assist your student in many ways. One of our most individualized and customized services is our Individual Academic Consultations. These one-hour appointments are conducted with one of our many experienced and qualified academic consultants. During the consultation, your student can discuss issues or concerns that he or she might be having, including time management, test anxiety, and much more. These consultations are free and students can come as often as they please. For more information and to schedule an appointment, click here.

Q: I'm worried about how my student will transition from high school to college. Is there a program that can help with this?

A: The Study Smarter Seminar is a program that is designed to help high school students transition effectively from high school to college. During the seminar, students will learn the various study strategies and skills that are necessary to succeed in college. For more information, click here.

Q: What is the difference between Academic Enhancement's GRE prep courses and other prep courses like Kaplan and Princeton Review?

A: While Kaplan and Princeton Review are great resources to help your students prepare for these exams, Academic Enhancement's prep courses offer the valuable assistance at a much more affordable rate. Set in a small classroom setting with a trained instructor who has also taken the exam, students learn about the format of the exam and take practice exams as well.

Q: Is there any way that I can ensure that my student is coming to The Study for tutoring?

A: Unfortunately, due to federal privacy laws (FERPA), we are unable to provide parents with records of their students' access of the program. We do encourage parents to speak with their students about college life and to talk specifically about resources on campus. Additionally, speaking directly with your student about his or her use of campus resources allows your student to maintain ownership of his or her academic career—a characteristic of successful students.

Q: My son or daughter has received a letter stating that they did not meet the minimum requirements on the ACT/SAT for admission to UK. How do we determine what test they should take and how many times can they take the test?

A: The placement exams that your student will have to take depend on his or her subscore in the subject areas of writing, mathematics, or reading. All of these exams are provided by Academic Enhancement and can be taken on campus in Lexington or remotely in your hometown. For more information, click here.
