Subject Area Tutoring

We offer FREE tutoring for many classes including math, foreign languages, computer science, accounting, and more! Our peer tutors have demonstrated proficiency and have been recommended by faculty to assist students. Our professional tutors already hold a Bachelor's degree or higher. Most of our professional tutors are adjunct instructors at Park.

Our clients are among the top students on campus! During the 2015-2016 academic year, the students who used our services three or more times had an average cumulative GPA of 3.24.

To get the most benefit from tutoring, we recommend that students work with their tutor regularly. Based on statistics from the Fall 2015 terms, 84% of students who met three or more times with a tutor for a single subject received a C or better in the course!

Why struggle on your own, risking your GPA, when you could spend some time with a tutor in the relaxed atmosphere of the ASC and boost your GPA?

Placement Testing for New Students

Incoming students to Park University may be required to take placement exams. Required tests may include math skills, reading skills,  and writing skills. We use the College Success tests, produced by McCann. Students who need to take these tests may wish to prepare by looking at sample questions. To see sample questions, go to and click "Sample Test." No log-in credentials are needed.

If you need to take placement tests on the Parkville campus, your admissions representative will help you make an appointment.

College Skills Seminars

Informal sessions on topics you can use. Learn study tips and time management skills useful to any student, whether just out of high school or returning to college after a few years. Seminars are scheduled through LE100 (Freshman Seminar) classes and by appointment.

We can assist our students who have special needs because of documented learning disability or physical challenges. Please let us know your needs! View disability accommodations.


We have computers available for Internet research and word processing. Our staff will help you learn how to use this equipment if you are not familiar with it. The computers are available during our regular office hours.


StepUP is a program operated through the Academic Support Center. The goal of StepUP is to provide the support and services for our students to persist, excel, and graduate. StepUP provides a social and support network for students who are willing to work consistently toward their academic goals.

StepUP students work with a professional mentor who assists them in setting goals, developing talents, and making connections with people and services to help them be successful in their quest for a college degree. They may also take part in several special events through the year, and be eligible for recognition, gifts, and incentives. StepUP services are provided at no charge, but space in the program is limited. To apply, pick up an application in Norrington Center, 2nd floor.
