Online Academic Resources

If you need help with the course you are taking, your first contact should be your instructor. In addition to your instructor, other resources are available. Some are listed below.

Academic Resource Center (ARC):

The ARC is to help students become independent and active learners, and through this to achieve academic improvement consistent with their values, interests and abilities. The ARC serves as a means to help under-prepared students to prepare, prepared students to advance, and advanced students to excel!  Learn More
