Academic Support Services Program

The goal of the Academic Support Services Program is to supplement classroom instruction by assisting students with improving the analytical and cognitive skills necessary for personal and professional development.

Highly skilled graduate students and professionals serve as supplemental instruction facilitators to provide a wide array of academic support services designed to enhance student success. One-on-one tutoring, study group sessions, as well as study skills, time management and test preparation workshops are a few of the services offered through this program.

During each session, participants acquire the ability to self-identify areas of weakness and develop strategies for success. Support sessions are structured to sharpen students’ critical thinking and problem solving skills, while promoting student application of course content. Based on the Piaget model of learning, students are taught how to distinguish their learning styles and to identify instructional resources that best suit those styles, thus enhancing learning outcome.
