LMU recognizes that academic problems often interrelate with psychological, emotional, and social experiences of the student. A variety of programs, people, and services are available to meet the needs of students. Any one office may serve as a referral point for services outside the expertise of that particular office. The academic advisor, the Tagge Center for Academic Support, and the Office of Student Services serve as an initial contact for the student. The Office of Mental Health Counseling is available for students experiencing mental or emotional distress.
