Student Success Center

Student Success Center

The Student Success Center exists to assist students in achieving their academic goals. We strive to offer a learning environment that is personal, caring, and accessible. Every effort in providing learning assistance services is characterized by respect for and appreciation of individual differences. As a resource for students and faculty, the SSC works to provide multiple opportunities for mastering the strategies, skills, understandings, and attitudes that foster effective and self-directed learning in college and beyond.

The SSC promotes learning by offering services in the following areas:

  • Individual & Group Tutoring
  • Remedial Reading/Writing Instruction
  • Academic Study Skills
  • Academic SuccessCoaching
  • Disability Accommodations
  • One-to-one tutoring & assignment feedback
  • Study skills training
  • Monitoring students at risk of failing
  • Academic Advising

*The Student Success Center is located next to the study area in the north hallway of our 2121 University campus. 

Who should utilize the Student Success Center?

Undergraduate, graduate, and doctoral students who desire to improve their academic management.

Is my Advisor the same as an Academic Coach?

No. Academic Success Coaching provides students with the chance to work individually with a professional staff member to enhance their academic skills, gain confidence, discover motivation and improve performance. Academic Coaching is available throughout the semester by appointment.

I have a diagnosed learning disability and need classrom accommodations. What do I need to do to receive accommodations?

TKU is dedicated to creating an accessible environment through reasonable and appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities.  Students with a disability are encouraged to seek assistance through the Studen Disability Services in the Student Success Center. It is a student’s responsibility to make their needs known in advance.  We cannot provide any service or accommodation when we do not know one is required.  Special accommodation services are available for students with disabilities on a case-by-case basis, provided that documentation from a properly licensed professional supports the accommodation. Students can view additional information in the MYTKU portal on the Student Success page.
