Academic Center for Excellence

Your Academic Success Is Our Success

The Academic Center for Excellence (ACE), located in the Learning Commons Library building, supports you by promoting independent self-directed learning.

We offer free tutoring programs to further your educational goals. These include open labs and tutorials for A&P and Biological Sciences, Math LabWriting CenterStudy Skills, peer tutoring, and group study sessions. During tutoring sessions, you can ask questions, learn at your own pace, and receive immediate feedback.

Meet with an ACE tutor today to talk about your learning strengths and challenges. We’ll help you refresh your essential study skills such as organizing time and materials, taking lecture notes, reading and studying textbooks, and preparing for tests.
