The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides course tutoring and a variety of group study sessions. All ASC programs and services are free of charge.


Tutor Request Applications for Fall 2015 tutoring assistance will be accepted starting Thursday, September 10, 2015 and taken until Friday, November 20, 2015.

The ASC provides individual or small group peer tutoring in most 100- and 200-level courses, as well as select 300- and 400-level courses, on either a long-term or short-term basis. Click here for a general list of courses tutored this semester.

To request a tutor, a student should complete an Application for Tutoring Assistance and return it to the ASC. Students should allow a minimum of two business days for their application to be processed. Once a tutor is assigned, the tutor and student meet on a weekly or bi-weekly basis to:

Examine Student Learning Strategies
Review Information from Class
Discuss Content of Reading Assignments
Work Through Examples of Homework Problems

Tutors are generally upper-class students with outstanding academic records and faculty recommendations. They are trained in tutoring techniques and work with continuous supervision by the professional staff.

Click here to access the Application for Tutoring Assistance.
*Some browsers do not support the fillable application form. If this is the case for you please right click on the application once you open it and save it to your computer. This should then allow you to type in the application. Otherwise you can print the application and fill it out by hand.
