The Learning Commons provides academic assistance for all students, and we are proud to serve the full spectrum of students - from developmental to honors.

We assist students who are truly struggling in their coursework, students who simply lack confidence in their learning skills or performance, as well as academically self-assured students who are processing their understanding of course concepts.

Learning Commons Programs

Learning Commons

The Learning Commons offers drop-in peer one-on-one and small group tutoring in almost all ASU-J 1000 and 2000 level general education courses as well as some upper-division core courses. 

Supplemental Instruction 

Supplemental Instruction is a academic support program that targets A-State's "high risk" courses by providing voluntary, organized, peer-led study sessions. 

Structured Learning Assistance

Structured Learning Assistance is an academic support program that likewise targets some of A-State's "high risk" courses similar to SI.  However, this program takes academic support one step further by building the SLA workshop times directly into students' schedules.  This way, all students registered into the SLA section attend the help sessions.  This program offers a powerful academic safety net!

Our Mission

The Learning Commons supports successful student independent learning.

A-State Resources

The Learning Commons provides the most comprehensive tutoring services at Arkansas State. However, other programs across campus offer assistance to special populations or in subjects not offered by our department.
