The Academic Support Center (ASC) is a vital component of Medaille College's commitment to academic excellence and to the success of its students. We offer a wide range of services to assist the student in achieving his/her academic goals. The ASC provides an environment in which students can get extra help, study for a test, work on a class assignment, or enhance basic academic and study skills. Our staff works to promote an environment of academic excellence while fostering success for the individual student. Regardless of your curriculum, the Academic Support Center offers many services that may be of interest or assistance to you.

All registered Medaille students are welcome in the Academic Support Center, whether you're a recent high school graduate, an adult returning to college, a transfer student, or non-matriculated.

Students may come to the Academic Support Center to schedule a tutoring appointment or use our online system for scheduling appointments. Students are encouraged to use the online system, it is extremely user-friendly. Our new Accutrack system is convenient for making an appointment with a tutor, a TRiO counselor, the disability services coordinator or the academic achievement specialist. In the future, we will add the ability to schedule an appointment online.

This program operates out of the Academic Skills Center and works to establish close, personal relationships between students and staff.

I'm grateful for the education I've received.

The instructors were knowledgeable and welcomed class discussions, with
respect for each student's contribution. I've learned how to be a more
effective leader. My capstone class gave insight on how to combine all
the education learned to operate a business. That's when I realized how
much I had sharpened my knowledge.
