Center for Academic Success

The Center for Academic Success (formerly the Academic Support Center) is dedicated to empowering students throughout their academic careers at Berkeley College and encouraging their development as successful independent learners. Staff are available days, evenings, and weekends to support students' achievement. From the first term, through graduation, students can access an array of resources to support all academic courses.

On-site Services
Students can participate in group or one-on-one tutoring in any subject, collaborate with classmates in study groups, or develop their computer skills. Students can also hone presentation skills and boost their confidence with the Speakeasy program.

CAST Anywhere
Study groups, tutoring, or Speakeasy are also accessible remotely on an online platform from any computer with a camera and a microphone. WriteAid provides asynchronous, remote feedback to students on their writing, as they learn to navigate the revision process independently. The Center's Blackboard site provides a range of online resources for math, accounting, computer, writing, and study skills.

Learning Strategies
Students can attend forums and discussions on campus and in the classroom on topics including time management, maximizing study time, working effectively in groups, memory techniques, and preparing for tests. The Center staff can also coach individual students through a plan for more effective learning, on-site or online.
