Academic Assistance is a service provided by Great Lakes with the intention of helping each student to reach their full potential inside and outside of the classroom. Incoming students, with a GPA below 2.0 and/or ACT/SAT scores below 16/820, entering on Academic probation, as well as students with educational disabilities or special needs of any type, are supervised by this department. Any student who desires tutoring or additional help outside the classroom is permitted to have access to this free service. Academic Assistance is overseen by the Director of Student Success, Adrienne Stratton, who personally monitors the progress of each student in need of additional academic aid. These students will meet with tutors who offer both one-on-one help as well as group sessions. The Department of Student Success is there for the individual, functioning as the catalyst in a successful collegiate career.
Tutoring and educational meetings are offered in both the Student Success Office and the Tutoring Center in the Administration Building.
Each tutor’s hours vary depending upon their own schedule and the schedule of their students, though most tutors are available at selected times between 8am-6pm on weekdays.
