Tutoring, testing center, academic coaching, and more. 

Mission Statement
By providing strong academic support services, Student Success strives to enrich the academic experience for all Greenville University students and assist them in reaching their full potential.

Purpose and Philosophy
Student Success is designed to offer academic support services and enrichment programming to all students on the Greenville University campus. Student Success services are based on the premise that all students benefit from some type of academic support and that those students who are successful in college are those who have learned to take charge of their own learning and utilize everything available to help them achieve their goals. Student Success is an integral part of the total academic picture on campus. Its purpose is to supplement the classroom experience and to lend support through the Tutoring Program and Student Academic Coaches. The goal is to be a resource to both students and faculty.

About the Tutoring Center
Student Success provides academic support services for all Greenville University students at no additional cost. Included in those services is our tutoring program that is held Sunday through Thursday evenings. Our exceptional student tutors offer individual and small group tutoring for general education classes along with writing assistance.

The Testing Center, located in Student Success, offers scheduled hours to proctor tests for students with academic accommodations, as well as make-up tests and quizzes for all students. After receiving permission from professors, students must complete the Testing Center Request Form 24 hours in advance to schedule an appointment. If students' schedules do not coordinate with the Testing Center's available time, they will need to seek other options with the professor.
