Academic Success Center

Division of Student Success

The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides academic services to help students achieve their academic goals. The ASC offers Academic Coaching to develop and implement strategies that encourage academic success. The ASC also offers tutoring services through online and in-person platforms, as well as through programs like Supplemental Instruction, Peer-Led Team Learning, and TRIO Student Support Services. Each program consists of individualized tutoring by high-quality tutors to students in a variety of subjects at no cost.

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an internationally recognized student assistance program aimed at improving student performance in historically difficult courses. SI offers students regularly scheduled discussion sections led by specially trained upperclassmen and graduate students. These discussion sections are designed to help students master the concepts of an academic course and, at the same time, increase their competency in the learning strategies relevant to the course. Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL) is a tutoring program in which groups of 8 students and a PLTL leader meet once a week to complete practice problems developed by their professors. This service is available for a select number of courses. TRIO Student Support Services (TRIO SSS) is discussed in a later section.
