Academic Resource Center Online

At the Academic Resource Center (ARC), we believe that academic support is an important and necessary part of any learning process. While distance learning continues, the ARC team has worked to transition our full suite of programs and services online, and we continue to be open through the summer semester.  

This summer, we are especially excited to be partnering with the School of Professional Studies to offer expanded access to summer academic support.
