Tutoring, advising, and writing: In each of these avenues to academic success, Queens College offers resources to support your efforts.
o The Academic Advising Center guides you in charting your own course through QC’s degree requirements, campus services, and educational opportunities. Stop by—or make an appointment with an advisor—to find answers to your questions about the curriculum and graduation requirements. Explore our website for a wealth of information about academic programs and policies.
o The Academic Support Center administers programs in academic skills development, provides tutoring services, and administers CUNY assessment tests. With our networked computers and study carrels, we provide an appealing place to hone your skills. Here you’ll find the Academic Support Lab, the College English as a Second Language (CESL) Program, the Testing Center, and the Writing Center.
o Thinking of applying to a professional school in medicine, dentistry, optometry, podiatry, veterinary medicine, or pharmacy? Health Professions Advisory Services will guide you in the background and skills needed, not only in the basic sciences, but also in specific areas such as volunteer work.
o If you are an academically underprepared and economically disadvantaged student, turn to the SEEK Program (Search for Education, Elevation, and Knowledge) for financial support, academic instruction, tutorial assistance, and counseling services.
o The ability to write with confidence, purpose, and precision is essential. That’s why Queens College has developed ambitious goals for student writing as well as Writing Intensive (W) courses and resources. For both students and faculty, the Writing Across the Curriculum (WAC) program encourages, stimulates, and supports a culture of writing on campus.
