Academic Success and Advising Center

The Academic Success and Advising Center, located in the Harris and Betts Smith Learning Center, is the primary source of academic support programs on campus.  The Disabilities Services Office and the Department of Veterans Affairs are part of the services offered.

Students can request academic coaching including goal setting and time management training through the Academic Success and Advising Center.  Our Disability Services and Department of Veterans Affairs departments also provide support services to our Centenary students and are located within the Academic Success and Advising Center.

The Academic Success and Advising Center holds a variety of success strategy workshops.  These workshops teach students strategies to improve their organizational skills both inside and out of the classroom.  During the Spring 2014 semester, students can attend the following workshops:

The Academic Success and Advising Center looks to assist all students in achieving their fullest academic potential through the personalized attention each student receives.  Every student is recognized as an individual.  All of the services provided are free.

All CAPS students interested in receiving tutoring should contact Frances Kutiak at kutiakf@centenarycollege.edu.  Graduate students interested in receiving tutoring should contact their academic advisor.

The Tutoring Center

As of the Fall 2013 semester the Tutoring Center is now located on the lower level of the Seay Building.  It can be accessed through the Quad door of the Seay Building (located in the same hallway as the Bookstore).  Proceed past the Bookstore and turn right.  The Tutoring Center is located to the right before the Mail Room.

The Tutoring Center is administered by the Academic Success and Advising Center.  All professional tutoring sessions take place in the Tutoring Center.  Tutoring sessions are scheduled by appointment only and must be requested through the Academic Success and Advising Center. 

The Math Lab is to support students enrolled in MTH 1000 College Math or MTH 1111 Quantitative Literacy.  The daytime section of the Math Lab will also support students enrolled in MTH 1180 Algebraic Modeling or MTH 1250 Geometry.  The Math Lab is operated on a walk-in basis.  No appointment is necessary.  There is no set limit to the amount of time you can get help.  However, the amount of help you can get depends on how many people are also in need of that tutor's help.  The tutor will rotate around the room helping students, so the way to make the most of your time is to take one of the following approaches:

Approach #1: Come to the Math Lab and study.  When you get stuck, ask a tutor for help.  Repeat as often as needed.  The benefit to this strategy is that you can study other material during any wait time and that the tutor is right in the room when you need help.

Approach #2: After you have studied, come to the Lab with a list of specific questions and work with a tutor to get clarification on these questions.
