The Academic Success Centre is dedicated to student success.  The ASC offers students free and confidential assistance in a variety of courses, including:

  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Commerce and economics
  • General study skills
  • Academic writing for any discipline

Students can access tutoring via:

  • One-to-one appointments
  • Group appointments
  • Mathematical Academic Centre for Excellence (MACE) drop-in (Room 10-2088)
  • Supplemental Instruction (SI) sessions (available for select courses)
  • Library writing help drop-in (first floor library)
  • AskOnline (online writing tutoring, http://unbc.askonline.net)

ASC resources are available on campus or through our website: www.unbc.ca/asc.

Regional support is offered through our online resources and the online writing tutoring system, as well as potential for one-to-one appointments via Skype.

The ASC supports faculty as well as students.  We offer embedded learning, which brings workshops and learning strategies right into your classroom – ask us about designing a workshop specific to your students’ needs.  We also offer support through the Learning and Study Strategies Inventory (LASSI), which helps our learning strategists analyze a student’s study habits.

If you are concerned about a student’s performance, we are pleased to take referrals.  All referrals are strictly confidential.

Our office is located at 10-2584, 2nd floor T&L Building.
