Academic Resource Center

Link Library 138

The Academic Resource Center (ARC), provides on-campus academic assistance for Concordia students. All students are invited to visit us for one-on-one help with study skills, time management, test-taking skills, and organization. The ARC is located on the south end of the Link Library.

Tutoring for Graduates

Graduate students have access to a service called Smarthinking, which provides tutoring on a variety of subjects. Smarthinking can be accessed on each of the online courses by clicking on the Tutoring (Smarthinking) button located on the left sidebar of the course page.  

Tutoring and Writing Center (Undergraduate Only)

The ARC also houses the Tutoring and Writing Center. It's located in the Link Library, Room 146. Students can find both subject-area tutors and writing tutors to assist them with their academic concerns. The Center is staffed by upper-level peer tutors, 7-10 p.m. Sunday - Thursday. Writing help is also available by appointment.

Tutoring visits are face-to-face. Students are asked to bring all relevant assignment materials, including hard copies of papers they would like to discuss, to their sessions.
