"Success doesn't come to you--you go to it." --Marva Collins
The mission of the Academic Resource Center is to improve student success by providing academic resources and support services to students and faculty in a variety of collaborative, student-centered formats that foster personal and academic achievement by extending classroom learning and adapting to changing individual and institutional needs.
The Academic Resource Center is committed to your success. At no cost to students, we provide critical resources to assist and guide you as you make progress in your academic program and as you prepare to enter the workforce.
Located on the third floor of the American Bureau of Shipping Information Commons, the Academic Resource Center operates three academic support units that provide tutoring and other forms of academic assistance to students throughout the academic year. Students are strongly encouraged to utilize the services and resources available.
Writing Resource Center (WRC) provides assistance and feedback for all types or written and verbal communication you will encounter during your degree program. Utilize WRC resources when you need a trained reader or observer to evaluate your work.
Learning Resource Center (LRC) provides assistance with courses in science, engineering, technology, mathematics, business, and other disciplines. Utilize LRC resources when you need a trained tutor to help you learn or reinforce skills for a specific course.
Assessment and Advising Center (AAC) is currently in its developmental stages. While no formal advising is yet available, a range of workshops, assessment tests, and proctoring services are conducted through the AAC.
Learning Resource Center: Monday through Thursday, 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Writing Resource Center: Monday through Thursday, 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM and 7:00 PM to 10:00 PM
