Academic Advising Centers

Academic Advising Centers (AAC) provide convenient, personalized academic support from peer advisors and tutors for every residence hall student as part of the Residence Hall Advising Team (RHAT). Peer advisors from all four Colleges – Letters & Science, Agricultural & Environmental Sciences, Biological Sciences, and Engineering – provide academic planning assistance, major exploration, grading options, internship information, and connections with other campus resources. In addition, tutors from the Academic Assistance and Tutoring Centers are available most evenings on a drop-in basis for free assistance with common first-year courses like math, chemistry and writing. For residents who are simply looking for a space to study, read or work on group projects, the AAC is the ideal place.
