Academic Success Center
Programs & Services

The Academic Success Center offers programs to help students develop the skills needed to succeed in college.
The Academic Success Center has several programs to help you be a successful student.

The Academic Success Center (ASC) is a collection of services and programs designed to support the University's learning goals, help UIndy students attain academic success and foster student retention.

We realize that learning and becoming a successful student involves mastering a variety of academic skill sets. Our goal is to provide UIndy students with tools and support to develop the academic skills needed to reach your potential.

We assist undergraduate students in becoming self-determined, motivated and independent learners by providing opportunities for growth through the following services and programs:

Individualized Academic Assistance

Academic Success Center staff are available to assist students on an individual basis and will customize an individual success plan based upon your academic needs. To set up an individualized meeting, please visit the Academic Success Center, Schwitzer 206, or contact us at or 317-788-6153.

Academic Success Program

Students attending the University with specific admittance status are required to participate in the Academic Success Program. We provide a variety of activities designed to help first-year students meet the demands of college and bridge the gap between high school and university life.

Secrets of Success (SOS) Workshops

SOS workshops are offered throughout the academic year and cover a wide range of academic, social and personal topics, such as:

  • study tips
  • how to succeed on essay exams
  • time management
  • roommate and relationship issues
  • health and nutrition information
  • internship and career advice

A schedule of the current semester’s workshops is available in our office, Schwitzer 206, or check the UIndy calendar for dates, times and locations.

Free Peer Tutoring

In addition to academic-help labs already in place on campus, the Academic Success Center offers free peer tutoring. Peer tutors provide academic support and guidance to students enrolled in general education courses. This walk-in tutoring consists primarily of study strategies, rather than content-specific tutoring. Tutoring takes place in Schwitzer 206 on weekdays in the late afternoon and early evening. A schedule for the current semester is available in the Academic Success Center, Schwitzer 206.
