The Academic Support Center provides services for all RIT and RIT/NTID supported Baccalaureate and Graduate degree-seeking students. Any NTID students enrolled in an associate’s degree program such as NTID’s AAS, AOS or AA program should first seek academic support from NTID’s Counseling and Academic Advising Services office.
The mission of the ASC Support Center at RIT is to assist and empower students to achieve academic success.
This is accomplished by providing quality resources and staff to meet student needs. The ASC's academic coaching; individual and group tutoring; workshops; classes; and presentations assist students to develop the necessary skills to achieve their academic goals.
To accomplish this goal the ASC seeks to empower students by assisting them in developing the skills and confidence necessary to succeed in an academic environment. The ASC will also seek to hire, train and retrain qualified paraprofessional students as peer tutors and advisors who will deliver individual and group tutoring; classes; and services for all students.
The ASC will continue to strengthen our working partnership with faculty, advisors, and staff in support of students' academic success. We will provide a positive and professional environment for collaboration; expand campus awareness of the ASC and our services; and develop and share our expertise.
