About the ASC
Peer and professional staff in the Academic Success Center (ASC), located on the 2nd floor of the library, are available to assist students in becoming self-determined, motivated, and independent learners.
Subject tutoring is available for most subjects but particularly for business, economics, science, mathematics, aviation regulations, and technology.
The Writing Center can help students at any point in the writing process. Consultants work with students one-on-one or in small groups in order to provide them with the tools, techniques, and confidence required to develop into successful writers. Writing tutors will not, however, merely proofread papers.
