Academic Success Center

The Academic Success Center (ASC) is dedicated to providing academic support for all students by fostering positive academic mindset, knowledge of resources, and belonging within the university community.  Towards this purpose, the ASC offers student-centered services in tutoring, mentoring, testing, success coaching, consultations, and workshops. While the ASC is available for all students, services are also focused on the needs of adult-learners, first generation students, students on academic intervention, and students in the Learning Support program.

For more information about the ASC, call (912) 478-5371 or check the Center’s website at http://georgiasouthern.edu/asc.  The Statesboro Campus office is located in Henderson Library, Suite 1303.  The Armstrong Campus office will be based out of the Student Success Center building until a permanent space is ready.

The ASC is part of the Division of Academic Affairs and reports to the Office of the Provost.

Academic Intervention

Undergraduate students who are on academic intervention, per university policy, are required to create and implement an Academic Improvement Plan under the guidance of an assigned Success Coach.  Success Coaches meet with students one-on-one and in a group setting through a 0-credit hour course – GSU 1000: Academic Improvement Coaching. See the Academic Intervention Policy for more information. 

Mentor Program

Based on the Statesboro Campus, this program welcomes any first or second year student to join at any point in the semester.  Peer Mentors and mentees meet weekly to discuss a variety of topics, including goal setting, major and career exploration, establishing good habits for academic achievement and personal wellness, and access to tools and resources, and social connections to the campus community.

Learn more about the Mentor Program at the ASC website at http://georgiasouthern.edu/asc.

Tutoring Services

On the Statesboro Campus, free tutoring is available by appointment and walk-in for a variety of math, science and humanities courses.  Online tutoring by appointment is available for all three campuses; tutoring on the Armstrong Campus is coming soon.  The tutors are recommended by professors in their subject areas and are trained, supervised, and evaluated by the ASC staff. The Center has a full-time coordinator and faculty consultants from the Academic Success Center who work with tutors in implementation of the program.
