Start by finding out why college success is built on the fundamentals: coming to class and studying often.
Duquesne admits good students...and you are one of them!
Let's face it. Sometimes, a good student like you faces a struggle or two in a course. That's not
necessarily a reflection on your ability to do the required work. It may be an indication that you need
something more than you are getting in class to be successful.
So, where does the good student like you go to find help whenn struggling in a course?
- You have an academic advisor whose role it is to help you navigate the core requirements of the
University, your school within the University, and your department within the school.
- You have course instructors who are available to help you understand course materials outside as
well as inside of class.
- You have tutoring to help you overcome course difficulties. Course tutoring is offered by several
academic departments-biology, chemistry, physics, math, and English-and supplemented by the
Michael P. Weber Learning Skills Center.
- You have help if necessary to prepare for a course you will be taking in the future. It's called developmental tutoring and is provided by the Learning Skills Center.
