A strong support system
The office of Academic Support offers a wide range of services to students with various needs in order to enhance academic and personal achievement in higher education and equip them for lifelong use and expansion of the knowledge they develop at MVNU. Every attempt is made to provide personal, individualized attention and support to students.
This office was first established in 1991 as a program funded by a grant from the Teagle Foundation. Since that time, the staff and services have been expanded to better serve the growing needs of MVNU students. There are no additional fees for any of the services provided by the Academic Support office.
If you have any questions, concerns or to request a job application, please come to the Center for Student Success front office, located on the main floor of the Thorne Library. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
One-on-One Tutoring is a service that is available to all students on the main campus in traditional undergraduate programs who desire assistance with study strategies, time management, or general education core courses. Tutors are student employees hired by the office of Academic Support who are trained to assist peers academically. Students make appointments with Tutors here. Students in the nontraditional and graduate programs (GPS) must follow the procedures for this type of assistance by following the instructions here.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an intensive assistance program involving student employees who provide weekly group study sessions for students in designated courses.
