The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides a host of free academic and personal development services to Kent State students. The ASC offers tutoring support through two main programmatic units: University Tutoring and Trio Student Support Services (SSS).
University Tutoring provides assistance through scheduled, drop-in, group-based, and online tutoring formats. All Kent State students are eligible to use the academic services provided by University Tutoring.
The Trio SSS program provides academic support for qualified students, as well as advising and skill development sessions in areas such as: study strategies, note-taking, test anxiety, time management, and personal computer proficiency. The Trio SSS program is designed to promote academic achievement while inspiring participants to persist and graduate in a timely manner.
The ASC has a proven record of enhancing student achievement, as well as significantly boosting graduation rates. Historically, students who regularly attend ASC tutoring sessions for their courses increase their performance by a full letter grade on average compared to their peers. The ASC is committed to making a positive impact in the lives of Kent State's students by providing the highest quality, and most innovative array, of programming possible.
