The ASC offers a wealth of resources to DeVry students. Visit the ASC for any of the following:

Tutoring On a Walk-In Basis
ASC student tutors are upper term students who have a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher and a discipline GPA of 3.5 and are recommended by at least two faculty members. They also participate in an extensive training program certified by the College Reading and Learning Association. Tutors can assist with courses in your discipline, general subjects such as math and writing, and concepts such as eCollege navigation and online discussions. The ASC offers tutoring on a walk-in basis, so no appointments are needed. You can also call other campuses to request tutoring over the phone.

Faculty Tutors in many disciplines hold volunteer or office hours in the ASC each week, and some Faculty Tutors fulfill part of their course load by offering several hours of tutoring support per week. Others offer support on an on-call basis.
