Academic Success Peer Tutoring (ASPT)

Academic Success Peer Tutors (ASPT)

The Academic Success Peer Tutoring (ASPT) program is specifically designed to help new students navigate the transition from high school to college.  Academic Success Peer Tutors serve as academic mentors and role models and work one-on-one with students throughout the semester to develop academic skills including: study skills, time management strategies, note taking skills, and test taking strategies.

While the ASPT program largely supports first-year students, any student can choose to work with an ASPT. Students who wish to meet with an ASPT should see Ally Chisholm, Academic Success Coordinator, for more information.
