Otherwise known as the tutoring center, SAS is a division of the Academic Center for Excellence (ACE). SAS provides Supplemental Instruction (SI), tutoring services and Success Workshops. It is also a major employer for academically successful students seeking on-campus jobs as tutors and/or SI leaders.
- SI is offered to all students enrolled in specific undergraduate courses. SI sessions are interactive review sessions and are facilitated by an SI Leader (a student that has already successfully completed the class and sits in on it again with you) usually twice per week. This is not a remedial program; it provides students with an opportunity to reinforce concepts with students that are at all levels of understanding. Students actively participate, ask questions, learn new study techniques, compare notes and predict test items with other students from the course.
- Walk-in tutoring is a drop-in tutoring service conducted in small groups by peer tutors. No appointment is needed and schedules are available online or by visiting the SAS office on your campus.
- Success Workshops are offered throughout the semester and are about one hour in length. The topics include; how to talk to your professor, time management, how to study for exams and the importance of creating study groups. The schedule varies by semester.
