The Academic Success Centre strives to provide equitable opportunities for student learning and development within our community. With collaborative partnerships, we offer a safe space where our peer leaders incorporate "how to learn" with "what to learn" to enhance student persistence in achieving academic success.
What we do
The Academic Success Centre offers a variety of face-to-face and drop-in tutoring services, including online support. In addition, we provide peer-led learning programs such as Supplemental Instruction (SI) and Peer Led Team Learning (PLTL). To ensure quality service in all learning environments all of our tutors and peer leaders receive on-going certified training.
All of the Academic Success Centre services are absolutely free to UNBC students.
How to find us
The Academic Success Centre is located in the Learning Commons on the first floor of the Library.
Call us at 250-960-6367 for appointment booking options, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit us in room 5-139G in the Learning Commons.
Our tutoring is available for both on campus or virtual methods. When you call to book an appointment you can request the option that is most comfortable for you. If you choose a virtual appointment, you will be given a link to the video room to meet with the tutor after you book an online appointment with us. All in-person appointments will take place in the ASC tutoring rooms in the Learning Commons. Our rooms are small, so we highly recommend you wear a mask while in the tutoring room with the tutor.
Asynchronous Writing tutoring is always facilitated via our online tutoring platform.
We are now tentatively accepting external exam bookings, but our location has changed so we may need to confirm that our rooms still meet the requirements for invigilation for certain exams.
We encourage students to take advantage of our online resources as well. See the menu on the left for handouts.
Stay safe and healthy!
