Catalog 2016-2017

Academic Success

The Office of Academic Success is responsible for providing services to promote academic achievement. The staff members work with faculty and students to identify key content in their coursework that can be reinforced through support services such as peer tutoring, one-on-one meetings, and workshops. Services offered by the Office of Academic Success include: 

  • One-on-one Academic Counseling - The staff meets with students to discuss their academic status. These meetings are by appointment and often occur based on the referral of a faculty member.  
  • Academic Resources and Referrals - Students may obtain information on a variety of topics, including time management, test preparation, and note-taking. This information may be delivered in individual meetings or group settings. The staff also assists students in identifying and connecting with other campus resources. 
  • Peer Tutoring - Peer Tutors are trained to assist students with coursework by helping them gain a better understanding of the material. Tutoring is offered for the following subjects: biology, chemistry, foreign languages, physics, genetics and zoology. Assistance is also available for accounting, mathematics and writing. The hours during which tutors are available may vary each semester. 
  • Services for Students with Disabilities - Hendrix College is committed to providing “reasonable accommodation,” in keeping with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1992. Students requesting accommodations should contact Academic Success at 450-1204 to make an appointment and begin the review process. Additional information appears elsewhere in the Catalog under “Students with Disabilities.”
