Tutoring Center: The Academic Link

The Academic Link, nationally certified by the College Reading and Learning Association, serves as Stevenson University's tutoring and academic assistance center, offering free tutoring in most courses to all enrolled undergraduate students. This student-oriented center, located in Knott Hall 201, "links" students to a wide array of support services and innovative programs to help students achieve academic success and attain their goals. The Link's mission is to provide services and resources to students and faculty which will enhance student satisfaction, strengthen academic performance, and improve retention.

Students work with dedicated peer and faculty tutors as a team to learn effective study strategies, increase understanding of course content, and become independent learners. Students who need help in a class or who are interested in raising their grade from a "B" to an "A" are encouraged to stop by to learn about the services, to use the computers, or to study in the learning environment of the Link. Test-proctoring services, for which the faculty member and student must make arrangements with the Link in advance, are available for students with documented reasons and are offered by appointment only.
