Any DeVry University, Keller Graduate School of Management, Chamberlain College of Nursing, or Carrington College student can make use of the services and resources of the ASC. In some centers, community members may also be invited to use tutoring services.
No, there is no additional cost to utilize ASC services.
Your professor is the foremost expert in your course material. In most cases, professors are eager and willing to assist you during office hours, by appointment, or virtually if needed. If your professor is not available or you would simply like to seek assistance outside of class, the ASC is here for you.
If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then the ASC can assist you.
Walk-ins are welcome, but to make sure a tutor is available for your particular need, reservations are encouraged. Most tutors can tutor math, but for other subjects (especially upper level courses), it’s best to make sure an expert in your needed topic is available.
Generally, they last about one hour, but you are encouraged to stay and work independently.
We recommend you arrive five minutes early to set up your work area and/or log on to the computer. Make sure you bring any material (including your textbook) you need assistance with and specific questions so you can maximize your time with a tutor. For math courses, you can share your MyMathLab and My Foundations Lab sites during the session.
Tutors are trained to use a variety of techniques. They include note review, problem solving, discussion, and others. No two tutoring sessions are the same. You are expected to be an active participant in the session. Tutors are flexible and will try to meet your specific needs, but they will not complete your work for you. They cannot help you with any quizzes or tests.
No, the tutors are hired through the local Academic Success Center.
No, tutors are paid by the university to be available during their work hours. They are not available for private tutoring.
The Academic Success Center respects student confidentiality. We do not notify anyone outside of the ASC (except where required [academic appeal, faculty referral, etc.]) that individuals are using tutoring services.
