OFFICE OF ACADEMIC SUPPORT SERVICES
The Academic Support Center, located in the Dr. Howard N. Carper, Jr. Learning Commons (Scarborough Library, first floor), offers a variety of course work and services to assist students in achieving academic success at Shepherd. The responsibilities of this office include the following: 1) peer tutoring, 2) placement and directing of stretch-model classes in writing and mathematics, and 3) advising.
Shepherd students interested in working with peer tutors from a variety of disciplines can make an appointment online at www.shepherd.edu/ascweb. Tutoring is free of charge for currently enrolled Shepherd students.
Students interested in being hired for a peer tutoring position will need to apply with Human Resources and meet the following criteria: maintain both a cumulative 3.00 GPA and a GPA of 3.00 in the course they tutor. Applicants are required to submit a recommendation from a faculty member and complete an interview with an ASC staff member.
Students seeking placement into university English and mathematics classes can arrange to take the ACCUPLACER placement test. At the conclusion of testing, students will receive advising on whether to enroll in stretch-model classes. Students who do not meet the state requirement for placement in English and/or mathematics enroll in stretch-model classes—ENGL 100A, ENGL 100B, MATH 101A, and MATH 101B—which are directed by this office.
Students returning to campus after academic suspension receive advising concerning a variety of policies and programs that Shepherd offers to assist them in reaching their academic goals.
