KAP stands for the Keystone Academic Program, which provides mentoring to help students make the transition to college life and college-level academic requirements.
Joining KAP is easy. Just complete the online form.
The program is designed to meet a student’s individual needs. We help you with time management, decision-making, communicating with professors, and other issues that will help you become more independent as a student.
Students who participate in KAP
- attend regular meetings with a professional mentor;
- participate in tutoring sessions in subjects relevant to your coursework;
- develop a time management strategy to keep track of classes, appointments, practices, rehearsals and any other commitments;
- organize materials related to your coursework; and

You determine the frequency of visits. While some students prefer to meet on a weekly basis, others prefer to meet every few weeks or only a few times.
There is no additional cost for being in this program.
Through KAP, tutoring is offered in math, writing, study skills, college-level reading skills and foreign languages. In addition, individual departments offer tutoring, to which the Center for Academic Achievement will direct you.
Tutoring hours vary. Most tutoring is offered during the afternoon and evening hours from Sunday through Thursday.
Tutoring is offered by both professionals and students who are recommended by professors and trained for their positions.
