Center for Academic Success

The Manhattan College Center for Academic Success is committed to providing student centered programs and initiatives designed to enhance the learning experience of all students. Students will work in tandem with qualified and caring professionals and peers to receive personal and academic support to ensure their undergraduate success. The Center for Academic Success (CAS) has two locations throughout the campus including the Writing Center and The Learning Center in Thomas Hall, and the Math & Engineering Center in Leo Hall.

The Center prides itself on its holistic approach to learning and is proud to offer various programs designed to support the entire student body. We provide tutoring designed to support students with their courses by providing them with content-specific assistance accessed through individual or on-line tutoring. All tutors employed through the CAS meet the highest standards of academic achievement and are certified through the College Reading and Learning Association. We also provide workshops focused on academic enhancement designed to teach innovative strategies and techniques to assist students with their own unique challenges and experiences.

The Manhattan College Supplemental Instruction Fellowship Program is another facet of the Center which targets traditionally difficult courses and provides regularly scheduled peer facilitated study groups. Supplemental Instruction is an academic assistance program designed to improve student academic performance and increase retention.

The Writing Center offers writing instruction to all members of the Manhattan College community. Assistance is available for writing assignments from any discipline as well as for any professional writing activities. Our cornerstone practice is one-on-one conferencing with trained writing consultants: we help writers identify problems and implement solutions at any point during their writing process. We forge intellectual partnerships to work on specific assignments, to increase confidence, and to improve overall writing performance. Various writing workshops will augment this one-on-one philosophy.
