Georgetown University is deeply committed to enriching the academic experience of students. The Academic Resource Center offers an array of academic support services, including study skills workshops, individual consultations, and tutoring in introductory courses, such as foreign languages. Study skills workshops are offered during the fall and spring semesters and are tailored to focus on a particular topic, such as time management, test-taking strategies, and handling the college reading load. If a student is experiencing challenges with their coursework, they are encouraged to consult with an Academic Resource Center administrator who will be able to address their individual needs and outline a plan of action.
In addition to support services provided by the Academic Resource Center, several academic departments offer specialized assistance to encourage students to strengthen their learning outside the classroom. The Writing Center, the Math Assistance Center and the Economics Tutoring Service represent prime ways for students to consult with experienced tutors who can assist students in their learning.
