The Student Success Center (SSC) provides academic support programs that empower individuals to realize their potential as self-directed learners. The SSC is located in the Salmon Library. To learn more about any of our programs, visit the SSC website or call 256-824-2478.

Tutoring Programs

The Tutoring Programs consist of Academic Coaching, Content Tutoring, and Writing Tutoring. The goal of the Tutoring Programs is to work with UAH students not only on content, but also on study and learning strategies so that students can become independent learners. The programs provide academic support to students in-person and online through one-on-one and small group sessions.

Academic Coaching guides students through improving their performance in and out of class by offering sessions on study, learning, and self-management strategies. During a session, coaches and students work together to create a personalized action plan.

Content Tutoring provides academic support for students in over 100 courses. Tutors work with students on course content and developing study and learning strategies. In addition to appointments, math and physics drop-in tutoring is also available. 

Writing Tutoring assists students in becoming more confident and successful writers. Writing tutors use peer consultations at any point in the writing process to encourage writers to identify and develop their own writing skills.

To make an appointment, view the drop-in schedule, or learn more about our programs, visit the Tutoring Programs website or call 256-824-2478.

Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS)

The Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS) Program provides academic support for students enrolled in designated courses that are considered historically difficult. PASS provides an active learning environment that focuses on both practicing course content and developing study and learning strategies for the course. Sessions are offered several times a week outside of class and are led by UAH students who have successfully completed the course and are trained to facilitate group learning. To find out more about the program or view the current PASS schedule, visit the PASS website or call 256-824-2478.

Student Success Center Canvas Page

The Student Success Center Canvas page is available to all undergraduate students as a real-time resource for tips on how to be a successful college student. Students can access short videos and detailed handouts on important topics such as time management, forming effective study groups, reading strategies, and test-taking tips.

Academic Success Advocacy Program (ASAP)

The Academic Support Advocacy Program (ASAP) provides one-to-one academic consultations. Students work individually with an advocate to navigate challenges that may come with the college experience. Meetings promote the student’s ability to explore, self-reflect, and evaluate their experiences both in and out of the classroom. Students will develop learning strategies alongside skill-building techniques.   ASAP also seeks to better support students by promoting data-driven approaches to student success across the university. The office is located in the Student Services Building, Room 200. Appointments can be made through the ASAP website (uah.edu/asap) or by calling 256-824-2727.
