Resources for Academic Success

Purdue University


PURDUE HAS A VESTED INTEREST IN YOUR STUDENT’S SUCCESS AND PROVIDES THE RESOURCES STUDENTS NEED TO DO WELL ACADEMICALLY.

ACADEMIC AND FACULTY ADVISORS
Every semester, students will meet with either their academic advisor or faculty advisor. The advisor’s role is to take a holistic view of each student in order to maximize the student’s educational experience. This is done by assisting students in defining, planning and achieving their educational, personal and career goals. Advisors are a great front-line guide for students during their academic journey.

FACULTY AND COURSE INSTRUCTORS
All faculty members keep office hours, during which students can meet with their professors one-on-one. Whether or not students need help in individual classes, it is strongly recommended that they visit professors during office hours for help with everything from exploring additional academic and professional opportunities on and off campus to learning more about the faculty member’s area of expertise.

ACADEMIC SUCCESS CENTER
purdue.edu/asc
The Academic Success Center (ASC) offers a wide variety of support services that are free and available to all Purdue students.

  • Supplemental Instruction: Peer-assisted study sessions for historically difficult, foundational courses. Supplemental Instruction (SI) is designed to increase retention, improve grades, and improve graduation rates.
  • Peer Success Coaching: A Peer Success Coach (PSC) is a trained undergraduate student leader who offers guidance, encouragement, and accountability for students as they work through any challenges they may face while working toward their goals. Students can meet with a PSC throughout the semester or periodically during drop-in hours.
  • Consultations: Students can meet with ASC staff for a one-on-one conversation about time management, effective study strategies, and other academic skills. Consultations are held by appointment and drop-in basis and can be a single visit or multiple sessions throughout the semester.
  • Workshops: No registration is needed to attend one-hour workshops on topics such as time management, “acing” exams, increasing memory, surviving finals week, etc.
    Tutoring: The ASC does not provide tutoring; however their website showcases the many academic resources available on campus. This centralized source allows students to search for help rooms and tutoring programs, as well as course-specific resources. Many support options are free for students. purdue.edu/tutoring
  • PurdueGuide App: This app provides information about academic programs, sessions, and resources around Purdue University’s campus.

DISABILITY RESOURCE CENTER (DRC)

MYPURDUEPLAN
myPurduePlan is a web-based tool Purdue students can use to track their progress to their degree. This self-help tool complements the guidance students receive from their academic advisor. “Fifteen to Finish” is a phrase your student will hear throughout his or her Purdue education — if they take 15 credit hours each semester (30/academic year), they are more likely to graduate in four years.
