University of Michigan School of Information


Academic success

UMSI supports students throughout their time at UMSI. We offer resources to help you de-stress, learn how to fund your degree, develop your academic skills and more. For more information and access to these resources, current students should refer to their Academic Advising Canvas site.

Programming and events

UMSI's Office of Academic and Student Affairs (OASA) hosts monthly academic success programs such as the Lunch and Learn series and the semester-end De-Stress Fests. These free events cover topics ranging from holistic wellness to academic skills development. OASA academic success programming is open to all UMSI students. 

UMSI peer-to-peer tutors

The OASA can connect you with students who provide peer-to-peer tutoring. Tutors are current students in good academic standing who want to help their fellow UMSI community members.

Financial aid, academic skills development, accommodation support 

The OASA helps students navigate the numerous resources available to them at the University of Michigan, including advice on program funding, support services on campus and finding a place to live.
