Find Academic Support

The Center for Academic Advancement

The Center provides academic support and resources for all Ithaca College students, regardless of school or major! We are comprised of the Academic Advising Center, Student Accessibility Services, and Tutoring Services.

The Academic Advising Center (AAC) has four professional academic advisors, who partner with faculty and staff across campus and can assist you with educational planning and academic goal setting. Every Ithaca College student is also assigned a faculty advisor in their respective major and minor and you are encouraged to meet with that advisor on a regular basis. The Academic Advising Center is located at 130A Rothschild Place. Appointments can be made by calling 607-274-1001, or you can take advantage of daily drop-in hours (Monday -Thursday 9am – 4pm or Friday 10am - 4pm) when there is always an academic advisor available!

Student Accessibility Services (SAS) works with students to develop strategies for overcoming obstacles that might otherwise limit academic success. SAS partners with faculty, staff, and students to develop and implement accommodation plans that provide equal access to academic programs. This office is located in 100 Rothschild Place. The contact phone number is 607-274-1005.

Tutoring Services offers free peer tutoring for Ithaca College students in over 50 courses. Students are matched with tutors who deliver academic support either through small and large Peer Learning Groups or through one-on-one sessions. Tutoring is offered as a supplement to other academic success strategies such as faculty office hours and course review sessions. Tutoring Services is located in 100 Rothschild Place and the contact phone number is 607-274-3381.

The Writing Center

Sponsored by the Department of Writing, we serve all Ithaca College students, staff, and faculty who wish to become better writers, thinkers, and readers. The Writing Center, located in Smiddy 107, has two main goals: to help students from all disciplines develop their academic writing skills and to foster advanced writers across the College. We are committed to helping students see writing as central to critical and creative thinking. To make an appointment, visit online or call 607-274-3315.
