Office of Learning Services
Every student has the potential for academic success, and we provide help when necessary. The Office of Learning Services oversees math and writing centers offering individual help, as well as the Learning Skills Center providing courses, tutoring services and study groups encouraging active learning strategies.
Specially trained advisors work with new students during Orientation and serve, along with trained students, as first-year advisors for freshmen. Each academic department has an advisement coordinator who serves as a resource to the department and its majors. The Compass works with undeclared students and provides support for all students with questions about their academic plans.
Disability Support Services
For students with special needs, the Office of Disability Support Services offers a range of support services and adaptive technologies. We aim to make sure all students who want to learn have the opportunity to succeed.
