"Faculty in the ASC are approachable, friendly, and extremely competent in their areas of expertise"
The Academic Support Center (ASC) is an academic support unit within the Division of Student Affairs providing programs and services that include experiences for students in classroom settings, small group, individual, general study skills, tutoring, and tutor training.
Most ASC services are open and free to all RIT students, including cross-registered NTID students, as well as RIT faculty and staff.
The ASC works in a variety of ways to increase students' effectiveness as learners. Students learn how to develop basic skills, enhance advanced skills, and cope with the academic environment. The ASC offers classes, workshops in study skills, and alternative learning strategies as well as a lab in mathematics and physics.
Most ASC services are free to all RIT students, faculty, and staff.
EMPOWER is a fee-based program.
A student with academic needs in a particular area can be sent directly to the appropriate drop-in location or workshop. For information or for schedules of current offerings, students or faculty may go to the ASC office in Monroe 2080 (above Artesano Bakery and Cafe in Monroe Hall), or call 475-6682 (V/TTY). Faculty may also contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
