For more information about specific types
of assistance offered at the ASC, please click on the appropriate
topic: math tutoring, writing
tutoring (business, science, etc), or advising.
All three locations of the Academic Support
Center offer a wide range of free services, including tutoring,
advising, workshops, review sessions and other academic support.
Because many of the services offered at the ASC are provided
by existing organizations at IUB, there are links to other web
pages to help provide more information. The following types of
assistance are available on a walk-in basis every evening (Sunday-Thursday)
at the ASCs in Briscoe, Forest and Teter:
Along with other computer labs in the residence halls, there are also small computer clusters
in the main areas of all three locations for student academic
use while in the center. The computers are maintained by University Information Technology
- For help in mathematics,
there are graduate and undergraduate student staff to work with
students in small group sessions. The emphasis is on introductory
math courses: M014, M025, M118, M119, M120, and M211. Furthermore,
assistance is also available in some upper-level courses and
in Groups math classes such as J111, J112, and J113. NOTE: The
Forest and Teter locations have been designated as the
primary locations for help in upper-level math courses (M212 and higher).
- The primary focus for the members of the
Student Academic Center
staff is to assist students with the development of study skills.
The SAC staff can also work with students individually or in
groups in a number of different
disciplines, including introductory business, science and
language courses. The SAC also offers the PASS program for help in economics.
Tutorial Services helps students at any stage of the writing
process, from brainstorming to outlining to revising. Graduate

writing assignments from all types of classes, with an emphasis
on introductory-level courses. Students can choose to have either a half-hour session (25
minutes of tutoring) or an hour-long session (50 minutes of
tutoring) at all three locations; students are only allowed one
writing tutorial per ASC location per evening.
Division Academic Advisors are available during the day for appointments and some walk-in hours for their assigned students in their offices at all three ASC locations.
Other departments and programs also use the
ASC facilities and surrounding rooms to offer assistance; Groups tutoring, review sessions,
group advising meetings, informational workshops and Supplemental Instruction for various math courses
can all be found in/near the ASC locations over the course of the academic year.
