ACADEMIC SUPPORT CENTER - YOUR GPS
The start of a semester means a new journey in academics for our students. Students plan what roads they want to travel to be successful, but at times maps and assistance are needed for orienting them to their destination. Through the Academic Support Center, students have many resources available to assist them during the semester. The Academic Support Center offers valuable support resources such as group study sessions along with multiple options for coursework assistance throughout the semester. These directional maps and guidance tools are your GPS tools for academic success!

In support of the College's mission and educational goals, The Academic Support Center provides academic assistance programs that target students' individual needs and provides appropriate accommodations to students.
THE ACADEMIC SUPPORT CENTER
"KNOWING IS NOT ENOUGH; WE MUST APPLY. WILLING IS NOT ENOUGH; WE MUST DO."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
The Academic Support Center is the central academic support unit at Maryville College and it can help you excel to make the most of your college experience. The Academic Support Center provides learning strategies and consultations to students throughout the semester that focus on learning styles, textbook strategies, note-taking skills, test preparation and test-taking strategies. The Academic Support Center staff also assist students with academic goal setting, organizational skills and time management.
Struggling with one killer class? We can help. The Academic Support Center provides assistance in improving general study skills through academic mentor-led Group Study sessions as well as individual consultations. Our most successful students at Maryville College use Group Study as an added benefit to their learning opportunities. Trained academic mentors are responsible for facilitating conversations regarding what took place in class and they provide structured regular weekly study sessions. In Thaw, academic mentors utilize the Socratic/collaborative/cooperative learning base. In the Cooper Athletic Center, academic mentors utilize a peer modeling and collaborative learning approach.
Group Study sessions are held at convenient campus locations. The locations are listed on the Academic Support Schedule which is available in The Academic Support Center, on-line and it is posted in Thaw and Cooper.
Whether you need disability services, assistance with study skills or tutoring, our goal is to provide the tools you need to empower you to reach your full academic potential.
SUPPORT FOR AT- RISK AND ACADEMIC PROBATION STUDENTS
Additional support services are provided to students who are academically at risk upon initial entry to the College and to students who are on academic probation.
New students who are considered academically at-risk at admission also receive support services. Students attend weekly workshops which include learning strategies, study sessions and course tutorials. Students also receive individual academic advising and monitoring throughout their first year of college.
Students placed on academic probation receive additional academic support. Students placed on academic probation for the first time are automatically enrolled in the course - "Effective Learning Strategies."
