As you look at where to attend college next fall, one of the important areas for your growth over the next four years is academic support services. We know college is hard, and because of this, we believe that academic support is for everyone!
Starting college is like going on a journey, full of unexpected twists and turns, hills and hiccups. New people, new places, new classes, new teachers are all a reality of jumping into the adventure that is the college experience. It can be very overwhelming, scary, and exciting all at the same time… especially in the realm of academic success and study expectations. However, here at Grace you don’t have to do it alone…that’s where we come in!
What is the Academic Support Center?
The Academic Support Center (ASC) is available to all students, free of cost, to help you better handle the college academic load. College is an amazing time when you are able to get involved in a community of your own. You are handling life, and creating your own rhythms and traditions that impact who you become. But, that also means you have a lot on your plate.
We get that; we are here to help!
Need a hand with a paper? We got you covered.
Can’t understand what on earth your professor is trying to say? We have one-on-one coaching staff that would love to sit down with you!
Daily we provide students with the resources they need to thrive academically.
