Academic Success Center

Academic Success Center

Located in the upper level of the Everett Building, the ASC provides educational resources at no charge to Lindsey Wilson College students. Included under the "umbrella" of services provided by the Center are peer tutoring, test proctoring for students with documented accommodations, and writing consultations (provided through the Writing Center located in the Slider Building). The overall goal of the ASC is to help students be successful in reaching their individual academic goals.

For more information about receiving tutoring or applying to be a tutor, contact Ms. Hall, Director of the Academic Success Center, at 270-384-8038 or


Peer tutoring is a process where a student strong in a particular subject tutors a student that is having difficulty in that subject. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all tutoring requests will be made online. Though tutoring sessions typically last the entire semester, the student may request help for a shorter length of time.

As students formulate, write, and revise projects for any course or other purpose, the Lindsey Wilson College Writing Center offers free, one-to-one feedback from trained, peer writing consultants. The Center understands that no two writers are alike. The dedicated staff works to bring out the best possible writer in each person regardless of age, cultural background, writing experience, or academic discipline. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the Writing Center facility is closed to in-person meetings. However, writing consultations are still available and all requests need to be made online. Contact, if you have any questions or concerns.
