The Academic Support Center
The Academic Support Center is the component of General Studies which provides support services to the academic programs at Elizabeth City State University. The Center designs and implements student-oriented activities geared to the individual academic needs of students enrolled in the freshman and sophomore classes. The Center houses three laboratories that enhance the basic discipline skills of reading, writing, and mathematics which are vital for academic achievement. Students who would benefit from the support services of the Center are identified and assigned to one or more of three developmental courses as a result of their pre-college performance records and freshman placement examination results. In addition, the Center operates a computer laboratory which has computer-based tutorials and offers course-related materials designed for learners wanting more in-depth study in discipline areas. A professional team consisting of specialists in reading, writing, and mathematics provides direct services to students in laboratory settings. The Academic Support Center services are also available to upper-division students by referrals.
