Advising and Tutoring

Advising for Full Time Students

All first year students will be advised by their Academic Foundations professor.  Upperclassmen will be assigned to an advisor in their major by the Academic Success and Advising Center.  All undeclared full time students will also be assigned to an advisor within the Academic Success and Advising Center.  Your advisor works with you to build a program of study, select courses, and stay focused on your academic goals.

As a full time student, you are responsible for making and keeping appointments with your advisor for academic counseling during pre-registration to avoid late fees and to ensure class selection.

Advising for Part Time Students

All part time students will be assigned to an academic advisor within their field of study.  All undecided part time students will be assigned to an advisor within the Academic Success and Advising Center.

If you need additional support, the professionals of the Academic Success and Advising Center (in the Harris and Betts Smith Learning Center) will assist you in finding a tutor to address your specific concerns.

Professional Tutoring

Centenary College's Professional Tutoring program is administered by the Academic Success Center.  The tutorial program is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association at the highest level.  Professional Tutors are individuals with post secondary degrees who have completed a tutor training program.  All tutoring is appointment based and may be one on one or in small groups of two or three.

Students may request an individual appointment for one half hour a week of tutoring in a discipline area.  Any student who needs to miss an appointment must cancel a least a day in advance during Academic Success and Advising Center business hours.  Missed sessions without this notification will result in being dropped from tutoring services for the month.  All students requesting tutoring must complete a tutor request form which is located both in the lobby and outside of the Academic Success and Advising Center in the Harris & Betts Learning Center (Library Annex).

Typically students are assigned to tutors within 24-48 hours of the initial tutoring request.

During the Fall 2014 semester, the Academic Success and Advising Center will run a Generalist Drop In for students enrolled in 1000 and 2000 level courses (excluding Mathematics and Science).  It will be held Mondays and Thursdays from 4-5 PM and Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 2-3 PM.

The Academic Success and Advising Center also administers mentored study groups and drop in tutoring labs.  A mentored study group is a group that a student may join that will meet weekly to help students master course content and develop effective learning strategies.  All students who would like to participate in a mentored study group must register for the group through the Academic Success and Advising Center.  Please note that participation in a mentored study group is a semester long commitment.  A drop-in lab is operated on a walk-in basis.  No appointment is necessary.

There are no fees for the tutoring services offered through the Academic Success and Advising Center.
