Academic Support Masthead

The Academic Support Center is a comprehensive student support office which offers an array of services to assist in your daily academic demands.

The Center offers free tutorial services, supplemental Instruction, facilitation of study groups, one-on-one consultations with students and referrals to other USC Upstate services. It also offers various workshops and seminars for students to hone their skills in areas such as time management, study skills, note taking and reading strategies.

Early Intervention Program
Faculty can report mid-semester on students who may not be performing satisfactorily in their courses. Follow-up is available for students.

University 101
We work closely with freshmen to ease the transition from high school to college. Freshmen are encouraged to enroll in University 101 (SUNV W101), which provides the necessary skills and strategies of successful college students and the opportunity to participate in carefully planned interdisciplinary learning communities.

Supplemental Instruction 
A series of peer-led weekly review sessions for students taking historically difficult courses, providing students the opportunity to network with their peers and develop study skills in a fun environment. On average, students who attend SI on a regular basis earn a final grade that is one half to one full letter grade higher.

Tutoring
Free tutorial assistance is available to students in most subject areas. All tutoring is peer-led, and we are proud to employ some of the best and brightest student tutors. Tutoring is offered in most subjects, except foreign language, writing and English.
