The Academic Achievement Center is a learning center that provides matriculating students who request individualized academic support services the opportunity to explore through academic coaching their personal learning styles, while focusing on their strengths and working to improve their needs.
Students are administered informal assessments that teach them who they are as learners. Services such as peer tutoring and study skills workshops are available for lower level and core courses. Our center affords students the opportunity to practice and perfect skills learned in class.
The AAC is more than a place to come for help. It is a comfortable space where students can come to and study on their own or with a study partner or even a group. We also provide opportunities to improve academic success through the use of technology, such as Inspiration, an online graphic organizer.
The AAC is centrally located on the 5th floor of Cook Library. In the disciplines of mathematics, natural sciences, computer science and music there are four satellite laboratories in the classroom buildings where these courses are taught. Placement testing in our center is administered for some entering students.
