Academic Support

Revised August 12, 2020

If you are having difficulty in a course or have questions not answered in the classroom, the instructor is the best person to approach. Full-time faculty hold office hours during which time you are free to seek whatever academic help you need. You can also email them to schedule an appointment. Your adviser is also helpful regarding academic concerns, curriculum and major requirements.

If you are a new student (first-year or transfer), you may meet with staff of Undergraduate Studies: Kay Greene, Assistant Dean or Cristina Cintron-Marsh, Assistant Director, to discuss any concerns you may have. If you are a sophomore, junior, or senior, contact Bruce Keller, Associate Dean.

The Learning Resource Network in Knight Hall, 215-572-4033, offers individual and group tutoring for all undergraduate students. Students may request a tutor, study at the LRN, consult our resources, or use the computer lab. Students who wish to improve their academic performance may consult with the Assistant Dean of Academic Development, Linda Pizzi, on reading and study strategies for their courses. The Writing Center in Landman Library provides individual consultations by appointment or on a drop-in basis for students working on writing projects.
