Academic Success Center (ASC)

The Academic Success Center provides free academic assistance to NC State undergraduate students enrolled for credit in many challenging 100- and 200- level math, physics, and chemistry classes as well as introductory accounting, biology, statistics, and economics classes.. Several types of assistance are available that are designed to best meet the students’ needs, including 1:1 appointment tutoring, group tutoring, drop-in tutoring, and Supplemental Instruction (SI). In addition, Writing and Speaking consultations are available to both undergraduate and graduate students.  They provide assistance to all students who need help at any stage of the writing process in the English language. Academic peer mentoring is also available to students wishing to work on general academic skills such as notetaking, time management, and test preparation.

Students are eligible to become a tutor for the ASC if they have an established GPA of 3.25 or better and at least a B+ in the course(s) they wish to tutor. All new tutors are required to take USC 210, Introduction to College Tutoring, during the first semester of employment. All tutors are trained in techniques that are designed to help students become independent learners.
