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 include time management, note taking, and the psychology of procrastination.
Academic services for students with documented disabilities are provided through the O.A.S. The assistant director for disability services is 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 time demands and the rules that govern intercollege athletics. Services include academic mentoring, space for quiet study, and life skills programming.
The Tutoring Center offers individual and group tutoring in most subject areas. Our 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. Whether you are brainstorming a topic or polishing a final draft, the Writing Center is available to assist at any stage of the writing process.
