Writing Center

Image The PC 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.

Tutoring Center

Image The OAS Tutorial Center offers individual and group tutoring in most areas of the curriculum to all currently enrolled students at Providence College. Our program is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Our tutors are PC students who have excelled in their class and are eager to assist fellow students by reinforcing concepts, building confidence, and strengthening college level study skills.

Academic Skills

Image Through workshops and individual skill meetings, students learn new strategies that strengthen their academic study skills. Academic topics includes time management, note taking strategies, reading skills, test taking, email etiquette, and overcoming procrastination.

Student –Athlete Services

Image Specialized support is provided to student-athletes in light of the unique time demands, responsibilities, and rules governing participation in intercollegiate athletics. Student athletes can take advantage of all services offered through OAS.

Disability Support

Image Reasonable academic accommodations for students with documented disabilities are provided through the OAS. The assistant director for disability services is available to discuss each student’s unique needs and coordinate services that are appropriate for each individual.
