Seeking a LAUNCH academic counselor?

What is academic counseling?  We help students with learning more effectively, time management, concentration, motivation, test preparation, note-taking, etc.  Our format is personalized and tailored to your needs.  We do not do academic advising- please contact the academic advisor in your major for that service.

In the Navigate Student app, click the purple Appointments icon, select Schedule an AppointmentSupport Services, and LAUNCH.  Follow the remaining prompts for the LAUNCH "Online/Remote Appointments" location.  We will follow up with you and create a remote appointment on Teams.  Questions about making an appointment?  Contact Laura Heidel at lheidel@uh.edu or Juanita Hall at jhall4@central.uh.edu

Seeking a LAUNCH Success Workshop?

Please look to your left for the Success Workshops tab.  On it, you can find our current workshop schedule and a link to sign up.  Workshops are great for enrolled students and incoming freshmen and transfer students.  Currently, our workshops have an ONLINE/REMOTE learning focus. Questions about signing up?  Contact Laura Heidel at lheidel@uh.edu.
