Academic Success Center

We help good students to become even better students.

The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides both professional and peer tutoring for all traditional and non-traditional (Adult Studies) undergraduate students. Our Professional Writing Staff provide individual assistance to students in all areas of written expression. Our Learning Support Specialist and Academic Coach work individually with students who seek guidance in the areas of reading comprehension, time-management, study-skills, and test anxiety. Peer tutoring is provided in most subject areas, and takes place both individually and in small groups.

To learn more about the services that our professional staff can offer you, as a student or faculty member, please visit the ASC on MyDSU.

Students with documented physical, psychological, and/ or learning disabilities may request accommodations through the Office of Student Accessibility.

Gateway to Success

Also housed in the Academic Success Center is the Gateway To Success Program, which provides more intensive and intrusive academic support to students who qualify.

Gateway To Success staff members assist students to emerge as campus leaders and to graduate with marketable skills! Students who have outstanding leadership skills and academic potential work in close relationship with staff members to achieve personal, social, and academic goals.

To learn more about the Gateway to Success program, please visit the ASC on MyDSU.
