Academic Success Office

Welcome to the Academic Success Office at the University of Dallas!  

The Academic Success Office equips students with tools to help them formulate plans, improve study habits, manage their time, establish priorities, and communicate with faculty, staff and their peers more effectively.

When you are struggling in a class, in all cases, the first thing you should do is sit down with the professor teaching that class. To find your professor's office and a list of office hours, check your syllabus. If you have misplaced your syllabus or the class has not yet started, click here, on the employee directory, to find your professor's office, phone number, and e-mail. We'd recommend finding all your professors' offices before classes begin.

After you've connected with your professors, please also reach out to our office for additional support. You can make an appointment to visit one of our graduate student mentors in Braniff 122 by clicking here and to visit Dr. Matthew Spring in Braniff 116 by clicking here. When you open the appointment page, please make sure you can see your @udallas.edu email address in the upper right-hand corner of the appointment page.

We’ll also reach out to you to assist you in overcoming low grades, inconsistent academic performance, or a lack of a clear academic direction.
