About -Student Success Center

The Student Success Center

The purpose of the Student Success Center for tutoring  is to increase students’ academic achievement in Ivy Tech courses.  Our goal is to enhance students’ ability to learn, to apply knowledge, and to think critically.  As a result of visiting the Student Success Center, students will become more self-confident, self-directed learners.  The tutoring center operates on a both “walk in” basis, and by appointment, with sessions of approximately 45 minutes or less.  Both faculty tutors and peer tutors will work with students to provide free advice, guidance, and suggestions. Tutoring sessions will focus on reviewing and explaining concepts and specific topics. Tutors might also introduce study and learning methods that will assist students in developing new habits for learning.
