Students may contact the Academic Assistance Coordinator for assistance in further developing their academic skills. This includes such areas as study skills, note-taking skills, time management, test-taking skills, and other skills that help students succeed academically. Computer programs that help improve reading, writing, and math are available at minimal cost. Study skills videos are available. The Coordinator will help a student engage a tutor, but payment is the responsibility of the student.
The Office of Academic Assistance also administers the CLEP, DANTES, and MAT, and proctors tests for correspondence courses. For general information, fees, or to schedule an appointment, call (479) 524-7401.
