Academic Support Center

The Academic Support Center coordinates the faculty-based academic advising program and provides a number of services to help you make the most of your academic experience at Gustavus.

Along with your advisor, Collegiate Fellow, Peer Assistants, and professors, the Academic Support Center staff offers advising and academic support services. The Academic Support Center staff can also refer you to other people, on and off campus, as additional resources.

The Academic Support Center offers these services:

Services are provided through:

  • Individual meetings
    Initial conversations center on assessing your needs and concerns. An individualized plan is then developed to strengthen specific academic skills and/or a specific program is designed for course selection.
  • Outreach programs
    Programs are presented periodically to classes, residence hall groups, and other interested student organizations on topics such as planning a major, designing a four-year plan, textbook reading, text anxiety, and motivation and goal-setting.

To schedule an individual meeting or set up an outreach program, simply stop in the Academic Support Center or call ext. 7027 and make an appointment to meet with one of our staff members.
