What is ASAP?
- The Academic Support and Achievement Program (ASAP) helps students learn how they learn best. The staff provides academic support to students (undergraduate and graduate) of all ability and achievement levels, through tutoring in writing, reading, math, time management and study skills.
- Students can receive academic support through ASAP in three ways:
- professional staff and professionally trained tutors deliver one-on-one instruction, small-group instruction, workshops and presentations;
- certified Peer Tutors offer in-person and online subject-specific sessions; and
- trained student leaders provide Supplemental Instruction for historically challenging courses.
- Students may use the services through self-referral or referral by an advisor, faculty member, or a dean.
- In an effort to increase student success and decrease anxiety, the ASAP staff has been instrumental in developing the "Paws for Stress Relief" program during finals week and making dogs available to students in ASAP throughout the academic year.
Students who have regularly used ASAP's services tend to demonstrate increased academic confidence, stronger learning skills, and improvement in their coursework.
