The Student Success Center supports students using every means possible to be successful in a class.  In addition to working with a tutor, we encourage students to:

  • Make regular use of their instructor’s office hours to ask for help working through the things they don’t understand. (See helpful tips)
  • Visit the library and campus labs to do classwork and consult with experts.
