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 experiences 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) employs peer tutors, writing consultants, and student success mentors who work to support the academic success and learning experiences of all students. The CAS has two locations on campus: the Writing Center and the Learning Center in Thomas Hall, and the math and engineering tutoring 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 in-person or online tutoring. All peer tutors employed through the CAS meet the highest standards of academic achievement and are certified through the College Reading and Learning Association.
The Manhattan College Supplemental Instruction (SI) program is another facet of the Center which targets traditionally difficult gateway courses and provides regularly scheduled peer-facilitated study groups. SI is an academic assistance program designed to improve student academic performance and increase retention.
