Writing Center

The Writing Center helps you with any part of the writing process, from understanding the assignment and generating ideas to revising and proofreading the final draft. The Writing Center also provides space and time for students to discuss ideas and explore meaning, and engage in the trial and error that is part of learning to communicate effectively.

Tutorials Center

The University Tutorial Center's mission is to help you to better prepare, understand, and develop the skills necessary to succeed in college.

Testing Center

The University Testing Center also offers many services to residents of our surrounding communities, including administering exams for admission, class placement, graduation competency, licenses, credentials and professional certification.


The PALS Program pairs first-time freshmen with peer mentors (juniors, seniors, or graduate students) who assist freshmen during their first year. Mentors provide one-on-one help and are available to answer questions students about university policy and procedure, General Education courses, major courses, and much more.
