academic support

Transitioning from high school to college may sound like a daunting task, but with the free academic support Lehigh offers for all classes, many students find this transition manageable.

Beyond classes, on-campus resources such as the Career Center assist in paving your path to finding a job that suits the passions found throughout your time in college.

The Center for Career and Professional Development

At Lehigh, as much as we want to help you focus on your studies and be in the moment, we also want to give you the resources to plan for your future career. At Lehigh, we have a whole department dedicated to helping you focus on career and internship opportunities.

The Center for Career and Professional Development has created a comprehensive strategy focused on career coaching and career education, generating new opportunities and mobilizing support from alumni and employer partners.

At the Career Center, you can seek out help for resume and cover letter writing, job and internship searching, networking, interview training, job offer and salary negotiation, and LinkedIn learning. 

As a Lehigh student, you can also sign up for Handshake with your Lehigh email to find internship and job opportunities. 

  • You can customize your search for internships and jobs, and apply to opportunities, all in one place.
  • Get personalized recommendations matching your profile and interest to internships and job opportunities.
  • Find and tap into resources that advance you career readiness.

Also, you can join Lehigh Connects to network with Lehigh graduates in fields that you are also interested in working in or join the Lehigh University Alumni LinkedIn Group.

  • With these two resources you can join a community of Lehigh Alumni and students.
  • Browse thousands of profiles to network with a professional in a position, company, or industry of interest.
  • Explore career options and get help preparing for life after Lehigh.

Career Expo

There is also a Career Expo each fall and spring semester to kick of the recruiting season by connecting students with employers who are launching their applicant search process.

Writing & Math Center

Welcome to a most unusual semester at the Center for Writing and Math. In line with safe practices and for the foreseeable future, all our tutoring is remote. We have worked hard to make online tutoring easy and useful, and I invite you to take advantage of our services. Our goal continues to be to make you a better writer and more skillful at Math. Individual tutoring is an excellent way to achieve these goals. 

In addition, we want to create an online resource for independent learners who want to develop their writing abilities and research techniques. Our goal is to provide extensive resources that we hope faculty, staff, and students at Lehigh and elsewhere will use to help build the academic skills and work habits needed today. I Iook forward to having you take advantage of all the Center has to offer.


International Center for Academic & Professional English

The International Center for Academic and Professional English (ICAPE) at Lehigh University helps multilingual speakers of English improve their communication skills with flexible, student-focused program options that are connected to the resources of the larger university community.

ICAPE is more than English as a Second Language (ESL). Our dedicated team of professional instructors offer non-credit and credit courses, workshops, tutoring and testing services to help multilingual speakers of English improve their writing and communication skills as well as their academic and social integration.
