The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides referral service to help connect students with appropriate resources on campus to support their academic achievement. Students may call, email or stop by the ASC to get information about help sessions, peer tutoring and other types of academic support. The ASC aims to support students’ personal and academic development at Valpo by connecting them with opportunities to enhance their learning, boost their performance and develop new study skills.
The ASC manages a web-based Academic Support Directory to assist students in locating and using a variety of academic assistance available in departments, professional colleges, learning centers and other campus offices. Additionally, the ASC coordinates the Supplemental Instruction (SI) Program, the Peer Tutoring Program and the Strategies for Academic Success course. In collaboration with other offices, the ASC works to provide academic support services that benefit the learning needs of students and promote their academic goals.
The Academic Support Directory assists students in finding help sessions and tutoring opportunities offered by departments, professional colleges and learning centers. Check back for Fall 2014 updates.
