The Center for Academic Success (CAS) offers support in tutoring, learning support, disability services, and, transitions and completion. The CAS supports all students, whether you need help or want to keep succeeding. We can help you learn more effectively by building on your strengths, navigate academic policies and processes, and help connect you to other campus resources.

The CAS services are free. Private academic support services could cost you $20-$60 per hour, but as a Susquehanna University student, you pay nothing.

During the Spring 2021 semester, all CAS support services will be offered online.

Academic Skills

The CAS offers help for students looking to improve their foundational academic skills. Our academic skills peer tutors work collaboratively with other SU students to provide individual and group sessions to enhance their skills to become more successful and independent learners.

Academic skills peer tutors:

  • Help students develop new skills or build on what they already know including time management, organization, college-level reading, notetaking, test preparation, etc.
  • Assist students in creating study groups and successfully navigating group work

Students on Academic Probation

Please visit the Academic Warning, Probation, & Suspension page. Academic skills peer tutors and/or subject-specific tutors are strongly recommended for students on academic probation and warning.

Tutoring Services

The CAS hosts writing, math, languages, international (ELL) and academic skills tutoring. Tutors are students who work collaboratively with other SU students to provide individual and group tutoring sessions to enhance their skills in specific subjects to become more successful and independent learners.

Peer tutors assist students by reviewing materials, clarifying problems and discussing course content while maintaining a professional attitude and helpful demeanor.
