Academic Counseling Program

Students with learning disabilities or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder often have difficulty adjusting to the demands and rigors of higher education.  Developing skills to sustain attention, structure to manage academic assignments, active learning strategies, and support to stay on task can measurably improve student success.

The Academic Counseling Program teaches strategies that enable students to enhance their academic performance, and provides an opportunity for students to get support to help them stay on task.

If you are having difficuty with attention, procrastination, completing assignments, this program may be for you. If you think you may have attention deficit disorder or a learning disability, or have been previously diagnosed with either of these learning differences, this program may be for you.

As of December 1, 2011, CAPS will no longer be offering ADHD pre-screenings. This change is the result of careful consideration of the value of the pre-screening to Mason students. Because the results of the ADSA used in these pre-screenings are not diagnostic and cannot be used without further assessment through a qualified psychiatrist, we have found the process often leavess students feeling confused and misled.
