Academic Assistance Center

The Academic Assistance Center offers tutoring, primarily in mathematics, the sciences and writing. We are staffed with current students who have excelled academically. There is no fee for UPIKE students who take advantage of this service.

The Academic Assistance Center is located on the ground floor of the Allara Library, Room 010, and operates on a drop-in or scheduled basis. The center is open daily, Monday through Thursday. The schedule each semester is posted on campus bulletin boards, in the Office of Student Success and on the academic assistance link of the library website. You can also access this information through faculty and athletic coaches. 


UPIKE Academic Assistance Center Receives CRLA Certification

The Academic Assistance Center at UPIKE applied for and was awarded certification from the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). The process involved analyzing what was already being done and designing future training that meets the high standards for peer tutors held by the CRLA.

The Academic Assistance Center has been in operation since Fall of 2011 and offers valuable services in tutoring, test preparation, study skills, note taking and writing to students enrolled at UPIKE.  Having a national organization evaluate our operations and deem them worthy of certification is both gratifying and motivating. As a certified CRLA member, the Center consistently updates and revises tutoring methods in-line with current best practices and CRLA professional standards.
