Up one level
The Academic Support Center (ASC) provides free tutoring to Walsh students in selected subject areas such as math, chemistry, biology and foreign language, along with tutoring in writing for any subject area. Students may walk in or schedule appointments. Tutoring is usually on a one-to-one basis, arranged in half-hour or one-hour sessions, and tutoring hours are posted around campus each semester and are available in the Center. In addition to providing help in specific content areas, the ASC assists with any area of the writing process: brainstorming, developing ideas and organizing them, understanding research and documentation, and reviewing individual points of grammar. Reference works, such as dictionaries, thesauri, style manuals and manuals on writing for various fields, along with textbooks for selected subject areas, are available to those using the Center.
The ASC also provides selected academic accommodations, such as extended-time test-taking and test proctoring, for students who have been verified through the Office of Counseling Services and/or the Director of Wellness as having a qualified disability. Students must register with the Director of the ASC/Coordinator of Academic Accommodations in a timely fashion in order to receive these services. Please note that the ASC can provide these accommodations only to students with qualified, pre-verified disabilities.
The ASC provides several separate quiet areas devoted to tutoring and test taking. Computers are available to those using the Center. The ASC is located in Farrell Hall Room 209, and its main phone extension is 330-490-7235.
