Academic Support

UMBC is dedicated to student success. The Academic Success Center provides assistance outside of class to improve study skills, facilitate content understanding, and to build a strong foundation for self-directed learning, an important skill for professionals in every field.

Course Tutoring

Math, Biology, Chemistry, Economics, Physics, Computer Science and Spanish tutoring

During the summer, the Academic Success Center provides tutoring for a variety of Math, Science, Economics and Spanish courses. Drop in for online tutoring or in person tutoring at the Library first floor.

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic support model that utilizes Peer Assisted Study Sessions (PASS).

The SI PASS program supports traditionally difficult academic courses by providing SI PASS sessions. SI PASS sessions are regularly-scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and predict test items. Students learn how to integrate course content and study skills while working together.
