The Office of Academic Services (O.A.S.) offers a variety of programs to assist students in their pursuit of academic excellence. While some programs are tailored to the needs of specific groups, most services, including tutoring and academic mentoring, are available to all PC students. Our office is located on the second floor of the Phillips Memorial Library.
Through workshops and one-on-one meetings with members of our staff, students learn skills that promote success in college and beyond. Discussion topics may include time management, note taking, and the psychology of procrastination.
The O.A.S. provides academic support for students with documented disabilities. Staff members are available to discuss each student’s unique needs and determine reasonable accommodations.
The O.A.S. offers specialized support to student-athletes in light of their unique time demands and the rules that govern intercollege athletics. Services include space for quiet study, academic mentoring, and life skills programming.
The Tutoring Center offers individual and group tutoring in most subject areas. Peer tutors are eager to assist fellow students by reinforcing concepts, building confidence, and strengthening general study skills.
The Writing Center’s primary goal is to help students of all levels and disciplines become better writers. Tutors are available to help at any stage of the writing process, whether you are brainstorming a topic or polishing a final draft.
