At Appalachian, there are many Academic Support resources that can be helpful to your student. The key to getting help is seeking it out. Here are a few of the many University resources:
- The professor should be the first resource. The student should see the professor before or after class to make an appointment to discuss the problem. Most instructors also list office hours on their syllabi, and students are welcome to drop in during those times.
- The University Writing Center offers assistance by appointment for students to get feedback on ways to improve and revise their written work. Appointments can be scheduled as needed by calling the Writing Center at (828)262-3144. Drop-ins are also welcome. Additional resources are available on the website.
- Academic Advisors assist students in identifying problems and developing strategies for overcoming obstacles. Advisors are great referral resources for other specialized services on campus.
- The Student Learning Center provides six core services. Two services, University Tutorial Services and Academic Strategy Instruction, are offered to all undergraduate students, and four services, ACCESS, Student Support Services, As-U-R, and Academic Services for Student Athletes, serve specific groups of students identified as needing comprehensive support.
