What is the Center for Academic Support?

The Center for Academic Support (CAS) works with students so they can become active and confident learners. CAS provides academic coaching, academic workshops, peer tutoring, study spaces, assistive technology, writing assistance, services for students with disabilities, and a fully-equipped computer lab to enhance and support student success. All services are available at no additional cost.

Academic Coaching

Our Academic Coach works with students who are interested in developing strong academic skills and habits. With skill and habit building through individual sessions, goal-setting, and small group workshops, students are empowered to enable their success. 

 

Tutoring

Peer and professional tutors work with individual students toward mastery of course content. Students are encouraged to make tutoring appointments online or at the desk in the Center for Academic Support. Tutors have strong content knowledge in the areas that they tutor. Students are expected to come prepared to tutoring sessions with questions and course materials (books, syllabi, handouts, etc.). Students are expected to make follow up appointments as needed.

The Writing Center

In the Writing Center, professional writing consultants meet with students for collaborative one-on-one consultations at any stage in the writing process, from brainstorming to editing a final draft.

Disability Services

Disability services works with students to ensure equal access to learning and campus life. Please see the tab above to find out how students can request accommodations.
