Adjusting from High School to University; Building Study Skills
The ASC is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA) and is an active member of the New England Peer Tutor Association (NEPTA).
The Academic Support Center Mission Statement:
The Academic Support Center, located on the 2nd floor of the d’Alzon Library, is committed to assisting students to reach their academic potential. The ASC is designed to enrich Assumption University students' academic and learning skills by utilizing on-ground peer tutors and professional staff and e-tutoring.
A university degree is more than just 40 courses and 120 credit hours.
At Assumption University, it is a personal and intellectual journey, and no two are alike. Assumption is committed to academic advising founded on a strong, individual relationship between advisor and advisee. All students are advised by informed, experienced, full-time teaching faculty committed to helping you chart your journey at each stage of your experience.
First-year: Assumption matches each student with an advisor based on academic interests and goals. Those advisors aid in the transition to university-level academics, guide students to resources on campus, including the University's online advising and registration system, WebAdvisor.
Second year: Advisors focus on supporting students as they choose among our 40 majors.
Junior year: There are exciting opportunities such as study abroad or internships in addition to course selection and career discussions.
Senior year: Advisors support advisees as they apply to graduate school and post-baccalaureate scholarships or move into the professional world.
Assumption University is committed to providing appropriate assistance to students with learning disabilities, ADHD/ADD, chronic medical conditions, physical disabilities, or psychiatric disabilities who can effectively function in our academic and residential environment.
