Welcome to the Office of Academic Services

The Office of Academic Services (O.A.S.) offers a variety of programs to assist students in their pursuit of academic excellence. While some programs are tailored to the needs of specific groups, most services, including tutoring and academic mentoring, are available to all PC students. Our office is located on the second floor of the Phillips Memorial Library. We invite you to drop in and see what we have to offer.

Academic Support

Image Through workshops and one-on-one meetings with members of the O.A.S. staff, students learn skills and habits of mind that promote success in college. Discussion topics include note taking, time management, active reading, and the psychology of procrastination.

Disability Support

Image Academic services for students with documented disabilities are provided through the O.A.S. The assistant director for disability services is available to discuss each student’s unique needs and determine reasonable accommodations.

Student–Athlete Services

Image Specialized support is offered to student- athletes in light of their unique time demands and the rules governing participation in intercollegiate athletics. In addition to academic monitoring and space for quiet study, student athletes can take advantage of all services offered through the O.A.S.

Tutoring Center

Image The Tutoring Center offers individual and group tutoring in most areas of the curriculum. Our tutors are eager to assist fellow students by reinforcing concepts, building confidence, and strengthening general study skills.

Writing Center

Image The Writing Center’s primary goal is to help students of all levels and disciplines become better writers. Whether you are brainstorming a topic or polishing a final draft, the Writing Center is available to assist at any stage of the writing process.
