The Office of Multicultural Student Services

The AEC Center helps students improve academic performance by providing free tutoring, academic-related workshops, handouts on professional, career, and college success strategies, and a computer lab. Tutors, lab monitors, and experts on strategies proven to help students succeed are available to help students reach their goals. The AEC, working in close cooperation with the student centers, also provides referral services for students with questions or needs that may be better met by other offices on campus.

The Academic Enrichment Center is located in the Compton Union Building 421.

If the AEC tutoring schedules or study tables don’t fit into your busy schedule, you can check out this helpful link! The Khan Academy website offers over 2,800 educational videos to help you with almost any subject you might have a question about. From differential equations to plate tectonics to art history, you will find instructional videos, articles, and related history for countless subjects. Having a busy schedule doesn’t and shouldn’t get in the way of your academic success!


Study Tables

Have a big exam or project coming up? Join one of our free study tables and work with other students taking the same class as you! Study tables are a great support system where you can ask questions and help each other to better understand the subject material. Students who attend study tables have the opportunity to work through tough assignments with support and guidance from one of our trained tutors and are more likely to earn better grades on exams and projects.


Tutoring Services

Tutoring services are free and offered year-round in one of the student centers on the 4th floor in the CUB. The Academic Enrichment Center trains and provides tutors with the skills to support good study habits and work effectively with students to achieve their academic goals. Students who seek help for their difficult classes are more likely to do better in the classroom and improve as much as one whole letter grade. The best part is, it’s free! Take advantage of this great opportunity.


Workshops  

Learning doesn’t stop at the classroom door! Multicultural Student Services offers various kinds of free workshops to supplement the knowledge you receive in the classroom. These workshops are designed to help you get the most out of your time in college, as well as explore your options in preparation for life after WSU. Time management, moving off campus, study abroad, and networking are just some examples of the focus areas intended to give you that extra edge to succeed.
