Are you finding college difficult? We are here to help!

The Academic Success Center (ASC) in the College of Education honors diverse learners and takes an individualized approach toward helping students succeed academically. We offer one-on-one and group tutoring for all programs in the College of Education, help students prepare for ILTS and Counseling exams toward licensure and offer tutoring in writing and mathematics courses in Education. We also help students navigate online learning and provide individualized academic coaching through our SOAR Program (Students Overcoming Academic Roadblocks).​

The SOAR program provides academic coaching to College of Education students who are struggling academically, including students with outstanding IN grades, students on academic probation and students who are struggling with mental wellness, as well as students who have just fallen behind due to life stressors and circumstances. The SOAR program assesses each student individually and works with them on issues such as time management, organization and motivation. To make an appointment, contact the Academic Success Center at

ASC staff are available to work closely with you to outline what you need to succeed, with a special focus on organization, executive dysfunction, dealing with anxiety and other challenges that can get in the way of meeting goals.
