Welcome to the Academic Support Center!
THE ACADEMIC SUPPORT CENTER MOVES TO ODUM LIBRARY JANUARY 11, 2019.
We are glad you are here!
The Academic Support Center will be closed for Spring Break starting Sunday March 17th through Sunday March 24th, all day.
We offer the following services to VSU students and the community.
- Peer Tutoring: We provide FREE one-on-one and small group tutoring for undergraduate courses for VSU students. Tutoring is available for most core courses and some upper-division courses. To schedule sessions with a peer tutor, stop by the ASC in Odum Library, or call (229) 333-7570.
- Supplemental Instruction: We embed students who have excelled in particular courses in sections of these classes in subsequent semesters. They conduct peer assisted study sessions for the course. The majority of our supported courses are introductory science and social science courses super sections. Many are also supported by a First Year Learning Community (FLC).
- Workshops: Time Management, Study Skills, Test Taking Strategies and more. (To learn more about the workshops, please click on the link.)
