The Re-admit Mentoring Program supports students who have been previously dismissed from the university for academic reasons and have then been re-admitted to Norwich by the Committee on Academic Standing and Degrees. The mandatory mentoring is designed to help students return to good academic standing.
The re-admit coordinator meets with students weekly and monitors their progress, helping students develop an academic plan while providing academic coaching and mentoring and additional need determinations.
All Norwich University students are eligible to receive academic help from the center’s professional senior tutors, who are educators with years of experience in higher education as scholars, professors, and tutors. Our professional senior tutors act as academic coaches and mentors, meet with students on an as-needed or regular basis and help keep them on track. The AAC features content specialists who work with students to improve their learning and performance in specific academic subjects, such as math, criminal justice, history, and psychology, among others. We are trained to help students learn better time-management, organization, test-taking, and study skills. Our mission is to help NU students become more active and independent learners at Norwich and for the rest of their professional careers.
The Academic Probation Program provides academic coaching and mentoring for students whose GPA drops below good standing and for students re-admitted after academic suspension. The mission of the program is to help students return to good academic standing and progress towards degree completion at Norwich by improving their learning, performance, and academic outcomes. Students academically at-risk are required to participate in regular, individualized meetings to help them devise plans to overcome academic difficulties and to monitor their progress. The program includes workshops and classes to help students advocate for themselves, learn better planning and organization, develop effective time-management, and improve study skills. Our program helps students lead themselves to academic success.
Our nationally-certified Peer Tutoring Program offers support in over 30 undergraduate courses from Chinese to Thermodynamics. Peer Tutors are successful students, recommended by NU professors, who complete training at the AAC to improve their ability to provide high-quality tutoring to fellow NU students. Peer Tutors help tutees learn course material, develop discipline-specific study skills, and offer valuable strategies for successfully navigating classes that they themselves have taken. Appointments are usually once a week on a one-to-one basis, or in small groups. Peer Tutors also run various subject-specific Help Sessions on a weekly basis. Students can drop in with questions and spend time doing homework with student experts at the ready to support their needs. Each year, over 200 NU students access the Peer Tutoring Program to achieve their academic goals. Each year, over 50 Peer Tutors develop their resume as CRLA-certified peer educators, content area experts, and academic leaders while earning income as Work-Study or Non-work-study AAC employees.
