The Academic Success Center (ASC), a division of Student Affairs and Enrollment Management, is committed to furthering the mission of Georgia Southern University by providing a student-centered facility dedicated to promoting academic success among all students. The ASC will promote student retention by offering academic support services to students, seeking to establish a firm foundation for their academic careers and life goals. Towards this purpose the ASC provides tutoring services, mentoring, testing services, individual academic consultations, as well as methods of learning courses and instruction for non-traditional students in learning support classes
Additional areas of responsibility include:
The ASC includes the Tutoring Center, the University’s primary peer-tutoring facility. The Tutoring Center is dedicated to the maintenance of a strong peer-tutoring network and to close working relationships with faculty.
The ASC also includes the University Testing Office, which is responsible for administering all standardized tests offered by Georgia Southern University. The Testing Office’s role is to provide, in a caring and concerned manner, a professional, centralized, and efficient office to meet varied testing and evaluation needs of the different University communities. This service and attitude are extended beyond the University to the varied constituencies of our service area.
The Academic Success Center is proud to offer a new initiative to support students’ academic and social support – the Peer Mentor Program. Any first-year or second-year student can request a Peer Mentor. Peer Mentors are upper class students of various majors, they are academically successful, and have an invested interest in helping students find their footing on campus.
