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 tutoring for Economics, Psychology, Political Science, Philosophy, Statistics for Human Development and Psychology, 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. A schedule of our Summer online 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.
