Academic Success Center

The Academic Success Center encourages students to take advantage of the many resources available to them at Lindsey Wilson College. Students are directed to utilize the center as a resource for improving study strategies and other academic needs including tutoring in all subjects except mathematics and writing. The goals of ASC reflect the dedication of the program and staff members by increasing the use of academic services, to improve successful completion rates, and to improve student satisfaction with their assigned tutor. Services include:

First-Year Experience

The mission of First-Year Experience (FYE) is to empower freshmen to become academically successful and socially responsible students at Lindsey Wilson College.

Meet the FYE Advisors

FYE promotes successful student transition from high school to Lindsey Wilson College. The faculty, the four First-Year Experience Advisors, and the Director of FYE establish a working relationship with students through intensive advising that guides them through course selection and registration as well as provides information, referrals, and coordination with campus services. In addition, FYE hosts social events throughout the academic year to encourage students to become actively involved in campus life. Lindsey Wilson College requires all first-time, full-time students to complete the First-Year Experience Seminar course. This seminar provides an in-depth exploration into behaviors and activities that promote success in college, including student skill-development, service learning, and healthy social living.

FYE program's objectives are:

  • Students will discover and gain insight into their personality, interests, and skills related to major and career exploration
  • Students will define how their personality, interests, and skills provide the foundation for their academic success and career readiness
  • Students will become confident in their knowledge of major and degree requirements to create an individualized path to graduation from Lindsey Wilson College

The FYE incorporates curricular and co-curricular elements. The two courses that are part of the FYE are First-Year Experience Seminar and Peer Mentor Leadership. FYE 1001, First-Year Experience Seminar, is part of the Essential Learning General Education curriculum, partially fulfilling ESLO 4, Application and Integration of Knowledge, at the core level. It has the following Student Learning Outcomes (SLOs): Students will have the opportunity to experience a supportive and positive learning experience Students will make connections across courses and disciplines inside and outside the classroom

Peer Tutoring

Peer tutoring is a process whereby students that are strong in a particular subject tutor students that are having difficulty in that subject. Tutoring requests typically last for one semester, but "quick help" requests may also be made for one-time appointments with a tutor. Students who study in groups often find that they learn more quickly and easily than when they study alone. Adding a tutor who has already succeeded in a class increases the likelihood that group members will achieve success. For more information on receiving tutoring or becoming a peer tutor, contact the Director of the Academic Success Center.

CLEP Testing

The CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) test is a series of exams that allows students to demonstrate their knowledge in various subjects. The CLEP test allows students to receive college credit for what they know, no matter where it was learned. The cost of each CLEP exam is $80. Pre-registration is necessary; forms are available from the tutor coordinator. For more information on the CLEP, visit CLEP Online.

Placement Testing

All students within one year removed from high school must submit his/her results of the American College Test (ACT) or the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT). Students who did not earn an 18 on the ACT in reading or English may attempt a challenge test during the summer prior to their first semester. International students and students over one year removed from high school are eligible to take the ACCUPLACER exam. ACCUPLACER is a set of computer-adaptive placement tests that quickly, accurately and efficiently assess reading, writing and math skills.
