Specialized Services

The Advising Center also offers specialized services and conducts targeted outreach to students who are academically at-risk or on academic probation. In coordination with International Student Programs, the Center provides comprehensive ESL tutoring and academic support to students for whom English is a second language. Students with documented disabilities or learning differences may also be referred to us for academic support.


Tutoring is available at no charge to all students to supplement your classroom and studio instruction. Tutors can help you improve your skills in writing, reading, ESL, and other academic and studio areas, including successful classroom strategies and study habits.
