Frequently Asked Questions
How can I make an appointment?

What can I expect when I come to the ASC as a walk-in?
Check in at the 4th floor main desk. A professional staff member will come and meet you. Together, you and the staff member will discuss the strategies you currently utilize and your goals. The staff member will coach you through creating an action plan to help you reach your goals and be more successful. You’ll receive information, referrals, and relevant handout(s). A follow-up meeting may be scheduled with the staff member or a Peer Success Coach.
Does the ASC offer tutoring?
The ASC does not offer tutoring; however, we have a database of all of the campus academic support resources. We can work with you to identify which resource(s) might work best for you and your needs. In our consultation and coaching sessions, we do use example concepts in your content area to illustrate a strategy. Utilizing both the ASC and academic support resources is an ideal learning environment for most students. Combining process plus content knowledge is a good way to improve in all your classes.
How long is the wait?
Usually you can see someone the same day. A week is generally the longest wait.
Can I see a specific person?
Yes, we try to link the student and preferred staff member. You can also choose to walk-in during a preferred staff member's office hours (listed above).
Can I let my advisor/professor know?
During your consultation, you can let your consultant know that you would like your advisor, professor, scholarship chair, etc. to be informed about the meeting. This is optional, and you decide what information is shared and with whom.
