Academic Success Center
The Academic Success Center (ASC) is dedicated to providing academic support for all students by fostering a 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 georgiasouthern.edu/success. The Statesboro Campus office is located in Henderson Library, Suite 1303. The Armstrong Campus office is located in PAC Building 120.
The ASC is part of the Division of Academic Affairs and reports to the Office of the Provost.
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.
The Mentor 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, access to tools and resources, and social connections to the campus community.

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

Tutoring is also offered by other departments. The ASC website does provide information about tutoring offered by other units as the information is made available.
