Faculty Resources

Faculty are our most powerful partners in engaging students with academic support resources on our campus.  To assist you in directing students to campus academic support resources, we have drafted language that you may choose to include on your syllabi/cougar courses about each center/program. We also provide contact info for each center/program.  We look forward to working with you to ensure students have access to available academic resources that are sure to help them succeed. 

Academic Success Center

The Academic Success Center offers free, online, drop-in tutoring for Economics, Finance, Psychology, History and Spanish courses. Our trained peer educators (tutors) are ready to help you develop a stronger understanding of course concepts, develop and enhance your study skills, and help prepare you for quizzes/exams. This semester the ASC will also be offering a series of workshops to support First-Year students in their transition to CSUSM. Tutoring will start the third week of classes and run through the week before finals. A detailed schedule of our upcoming workshops and tutoring hours can be found on the ASC website or we also encourage students to stop by and visit our virtual Academic Success Center on Microsoft Teams. Follow us on Instagram @csusm_asc.

Students, who attend SI sessions weekly, typically earn a higher final course grade than students who do not participate in SI. SI is for everyone and open to all students enrolled in this class; attend early and often to ensure you never fall behind! SI study sessions begin during the 3rd week of the semester and are now being held virtually or in-person.
