The Academic Success Center (ASC) is located on the second floor of Medford Library. Designed to help USC Lancaster students attain academic success, the Academic Success Center provides students with a variety of resources to support their academic pursuits, including one-on-one tutoring, computer assisted instruction (CAI), instructional video tapes, supplementary handbooks and texts, and workbooks. The ASC works closely with faculty members to provide assistance that is linked to particular courses, and offers discipline- and course-specific tutoring. All tutors, peer and professional, are evaluated by USCL faculty to determine their level of expertise.
Writing Center Consultants are available to work with students on writing assignments for any USCL course, at any stage of the writing process. Students can also use the resources of the ASC to improve study and time-management skills. Students who use the ASC have access to a state-of-the-art general computer lab. The computer workstations are open to students for course-specific or independent work. Available free of charge to all USCL students, the services of the ASC are designed to help students make the most of their educational opportunities.
Center hours are 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday. (Hours differ during breaks and summer.) Stop by any time to work on specific material for a course or to work on developing better study habits. We look forward to seeing you.
