Academic Support

Academic Support partners with faculty and campus resources to enrich student learning across disciplines and beyond them. We help students build long-term learning strategies for success by emphasizing their autonomy as learners through:

  • drop-in, group tutoring for key courses and subjects;
  • supplemental instruction in several science gateway courses;
  • content tutoring individually and in small groups for many classes;
  • a variety of skills sessions focused on “studenting skills”; 
  • academic planning support.  

With these resources, we are encouraging students to build tools to be successful in all of their classes and, ultimately, in earning their degree at Moravian.  Services are free and available to all enrolled students.
