The mission of the Academic Resource Center is to improve student success by providing academic resources and other support services to students and faculty in a variety of collaborative, student-centered formats that foster personal and academic achievement by extending classroom learning and adapting to changing individual and institutional needs.

The Academic Resource Center is committed to your success. At no cost to students, we provide critical resources to assist and guide you as you make progress in your academic program and as you prepare to enter the workforce.

Located on the third floor of the American Bureau of Shipping Information Commons, the Academic Resource Center operates three academic support units that provide tutoring and other forms of academic assistance to students throughout the academic year. Students are strongly encouraged to utilize the services and resources available.

The Writing Resource Center (WRC) provides assistance and feedback for all types of written and verbal communication you will encounter during your degree program. Utilize WRC resources when you need a trained reader or observer to evaluate your work.

The Learning Resource Center (LRC) provides assistance with courses in science, technology, engineering, mathematics, marine transportation, business, and other disciplines. Utilize LRC resources when you need a trained tutor to help you learn or reinforce skills for a specific course.

The Assessment and Advising Center (AAC) provides testing, college skills, and advising services to assist students as they make progress toward a degree. Utilize AAC resources for testing and advising. Two advisors are on staff during daytime hours to assist you with degree checks and general advising questions. These advisors provide supplement advising, and their services do not substitute for required consultations with your assigned faculty advisor.
