Academic Support Services
The ASU Tutor Center offers broad-based study skill strategies and techniques to promote critical thinking and time management. Our tutors are multi-disciplined, multi-talented undergraduates who see students on a walk-in basis – no appointments are necessary. Group and individual tutoring sessions last about an hour.
Early Alert provides structure and assistance to students exhibiting at-risk academic performance or behavior in the classroom.
Professional advisors act as guides and resources for pre-declared students who need help identifying a course of study and selecting a major. Through pre-declared advising, students explore degree and course offerings while developing academic goals. Our pre-declared advisors acknowledge that through caring and competent advising, our students are better equipped to reach their full academic potential.
SMART is ASU’s umbrella of academic support, and it includes a series of workshops providing a concentrated emphasis on the study strategies necessary for academic success. Hour-long SMART workshops are offered in the evenings throughout each semester.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that uses student-led group study sessions to assist students in traditionally difficult courses. The typical SI session, an hour-long meeting held in a classroom, offers ASU students an opportunity to actively involve themselves with the course by participating in lecture discussions, clarifying notes and developing effective study skills strategies.
