Do you struggle with taking notes or organizing your day around classes? Maybe you use a wheelchair and have trouble navigating a crowded campus. Whatever obstacle is preventing you from reaching your highest potential, the Academic Resource Center (ARC) can help you turn that obstacle into a stepping stone.
ARC provides student support that goes beyond the classroom, meets individuals where they are and helps them achieve academic and personal goals. We equip you with the necessary tools for success. We offer a variety of academic support services and work closely with students, faculty, and staff, offering writing assistance, subject tutoring, academic recovery plans, disabilities services, and other resources.
The Academic Resource Center provides support in Math, Statistics, Science, and Business courses through tutoring and online resources.
In the Writing Center, we offer GSU students assistance through resource links on our webpage, in person, and through our online writing center.
Student Disabilities Services
Disabilities Services is committed to providing student support and seeks to foster independence and develop self-advocacy of students with disabilities.
Learning Strategies and Resources
Not all students have mastered the skills needed to succeed in college. The ARC offers online resources and workshops to enhance students’ learning skills from note taking and organization to time management and rest as they take on more challenges.

recovery plan to help freshmen who are on academic probation return to
