Our handouts serve as a collection of advice and guidelines compiled by our coaches and tutors on some of the most common issues that college students encounter. Handouts are available in Adobe Acrobat format (.pdf) and can be used as portable, digital documents or convenient on-demand printouts.

Want to use our handouts in your class? Please feel free to link directly to our website or resources. Additionally, if you want a more in-depth approach, please feel free to request a collaboration. 

Student Resources

One of our goals at the Academic Success Center is to ensure that all Bearkats are equipped with the necessary tools for success. Below is a collection of online and on-campus resources available to students to help with their success. Please note that these resources are not managed by the ASC.

  • Online Resources

    Purdue OWL

    Purdue's Online Writing Lab (OWL) is the gold standard for citation/style guide supplements and a pioneer in online citation support. If you are unable to find the answer in our handouts, Purdue's OWL is the next best place to start
