|Website:||Student Academic Support (SAS)|
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 free 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 gives students an opportunity to ask questions, learn new study techniques, compare notes and predict test items with students of all levels from their class.
- Walk-in Tutoring is a free 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.
- Series of Success Workshops are free workshops of about one hour in length. They are available in a variety of topics, such as how to talk to your professor, time management, how to study for mid-terms and the importance of creating study groups. The schedule varies by semester. For more information, call or visit the Student Academic Support website.
