The Academic Success Center

Welcome from the Dean

Dear Students,

We are excited to start off the new academic year in the newly restructured and renamed Academic Success Center. Students at Merrimack have a plethora of support throughout the campus community that enhances their opportunity for success. The staff of the Academic Success Center supports the work of the faculty to help students succeed. 

Students are encouraged to seek out the guidance of their faculty advisers regarding their course of study. The Academic Success Center is happy to be available to supplement the primary advising of the faculty. Our staff is here to mentor, counsel, coach and advise students, especially those who find themselves between majors or who need some additional support to achieve their goals. 

In the Academic Success Center, students will also find information on how to locate tutoring across the college. They can also obtain a tutor for any mathematics course and writing for any course in which they are enrolled. 

The office of Accessibility Services is here to facilitate the securing of accommodations for students who need them. 

Please drop by the Academic Success Center, where I hope you will find the nexus of success for Merrimack students.

Peter Ellard
Dean of Student Success and Academic Support
