Welcome from the Dean

Welcome to the Academic Success Center

Dear Current and Prospective Students,

The Academic Success Center is here for you. Our team supports the work of our faculty to help you succeed. 

You are encouraged to seek out the guidance of your faculty advisers regarding your course of study. But we are also here to help supplement the primary advising of the faculty. Our staff is here to mentor, counsel, coach and advise you, especially if you find yourself between majors or need some additional support to achieve your goals. 

In the Academic Success Center, you will also find information on how to locate tutoring across the college. You can also get a tutor for any mathematics or writing course you are taking.

Please drop by the Academic Success Center, where you will find encouragement and support in your time at Merrimack.
