The Academic Success Center is home to the Director of Academic Success Services, the Assistant Director, and two learning strategies specialists. The Academic Success Center (ASC) is available to serve students with a variety of academic and organizational needs by offering academic success coaching, academic accommodations, and peer tutoring.

Workshops are held each semester on a variety of academic skills. Workshops are open to all students and, in the past, have included topics such as study skills, test-taking strategies, and test anxiety.
Because we recognize that some students may need additional support within their learning environments, academic accommodations may be available to students with psychiatric, learning, or medical conditions in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Requests are considered on an individual basis. Contact Stacy Shober for more information at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Transitioning to college poses a unique set of challenges and opportunities. The First Year Experience (FYE) course assists in that adjustment through classroom discussions, service learning projects, and large group activities. FYE is a mandatory one-credit course designed to help students successfully navigate the college system while growing both educationally and personally.
