How Do I Refer Students to the ASC?
There are several ways we can help students reach their academic potential. Review our list of programs and services as a starting point or download a printable quick reference guide to referrals.
Below is a blurb about the ASC that you can paste into your syllabus:
Academic Success Center (ASC Syllabus Statement)
The ASC (http://asc.tamu.edu) provides comprehensive resources that help all Aggies achieve their academic goals and realize their academic potential. Academic Coaches help students overcome barriers to academic success, whether that’s difficulty with reading, test-taking, time management, motivation, or something else. The ASC is located on the 9th floor of Rudder Tower, Monday-Friday, 8am – 5pm. You can find academic help on campus, including study and learning materials, ASC Supplemental Instruction sessions and ASC tutoring, by visiting http://studyhub.tamu.edu.
Referring Students to Tutoring
We offer in-person and online appointment tutoring for highly requested, core-curriculum courses in science, engineering, and business. Our tutors are knowledgeable about course content as well as trained in developing learning strategies, fostering confidence, and encouraging independent learning. Visit our academic tutoring page to learn more about appointment types, how students can make an appointment, as well as the current list of subjects we can tutor in.
Referring Students to Supplemental Instruction (SI)
Since SI is tied to a specific course, enrolled students will receive communication directly from the SI leader assigned to their class or from the instructor about the details of their SI session. Learn more about what to expect from our SI sessions.
Referring Individual Students to Academic Coaching
Academic advisors, faculty, and staff are invited to refer students to academic coaching by having them follow instructions to make an appointment on Navigate.
Coaches conduct initial one-to-one appointments and follow-ups to implement success plans. Coaches monitor and track the progress of students they are working with and record session notes in Navigate, where they are visible for advisors, faculty, and staff with access privileges.
Referring Student Veterans
We offer academic coaching each semester at the Veteran Resource & Support Center for student veterans that wish to meet there. We also co-facilitate the Veteran Academic Academy, a one-day workshop geared towards incoming student veterans. The workshop provides instruction and activities to address both academic and cultural/social transition skills.
You may have identified a group (or groups) of students who need academic support, such as students on academic probation or warning. In some cases, it may be appropriate to require or recommend that students earn a Success Certificate. The Academic Success Center can monitor and track the progress of referred students and provide periodic reporting to departments or colleges. Referral agreements should be arranged by contacting Dr. Joel McGee, Director at the Academic Success Center.
