Academic Support Center (ASC)

The Academic Support Center (ASC), located on 9th floor, Howe Center, provides a variety of support programs and services to assist undergraduate students in achieving academic success. These services include: Academic Tutoring, Freshman Quiz Review Sessions, the Peer Leader Program and Academic Success Workshops.

Tutoring for technical courses is provided free of charge by trained undergraduate students. The ASC offers both individually assigned tutors and a walk-in tutoring center located on the first floor of the Library behind the front desk in a room called "Sam's Place". The ASC supports undergraduate students with understanding course material and becoming effective learners.

Freshman Quiz Reviews for many first year technical courses are sponsored by ASC and conducted by skilled undergraduate and graduate students. The goal of a review session is to provide the student with additional insight into material previously presented in class. Please note, these review sessions are intended solely as a review, not as a substitute for attending class or preparing on one’s own.

The Peer Leader program, a collaboration between Undergraduate Academics and Student Life, provides an opportunity for new first year students to connect with an undergraduate student who has completed at least one year at Stevens. Peer Leaders assist new students in their academic and social transition from high school to college. The mentoring process intends to provide new students with the information, support and encouragement they need to be successful at Stevens.

Academic Success Workshops are offered throughout each semester. Workshops cover a variety of topics aimed to assist students in their transition to college and success at Stevens. Topics include: Time Management, Getting Organized and Setting Goals and Preparing for Final Exams.
