Pathway to Achievement

Sometimes college students encounter academic and personal obstacles that can derail their college plans.  For these students, the challenges of navigating college life are often overwhelming.  The Academic Support Center (ASC) can help by providing free support services to all students conducting homework, seeking tutoring, or attending workshops.

Creating Successful Students

College can be a challenging experience for some students. In particular, first-generation students and other students who have no parental script to follow when it comes to making academic or social decisions about college life may find themselves overwhelmed. From the first day of classes, the Academic Support Center provides an important connection to campus resources for all students, encouraging their academic success, integrating them into campus life, and creating a support system to ensure they will excel in college and beyond. 

The Academic Support Center serves as a go-to academic resource center providing students with a wide range of support services to help them met the academic demands of college-level work and seeks to contribute to and enhance undergraduate students' success by encouraging informed decision-making about the academic direction in a supportive way.

The University requires that every student meets with their advisor every semester through graduation to assist students in taking advantage of all that ASUN has to offer.
