Academic Support and Resources

We are dedicated to the academic success of all students. We provide research resources and support through our library services and academic success services. Our mission is to equip students with the resources, materials, skill and techniques needed to fulfill scholarly pursuits, while upholding our central confession that Jesus Christ is Lord.

Tutoring and Services

We have several services to help you meet your academic goals: tutoring, coaching and instruction, test reviews, workshops,  study groups, and English and reading support.

Services are conducted remotely through Blackboard (Online Tutoring) and in-person at the Academic Support and Resources office. Visit early and visit often. We look forward to serving you.
