The Academic Success Center (ASC) strives to provide academic success services to current OSU students at all levels of their education.  


  • Do you want to improve your study habits and/or grades? Check out our Academic Coaching Program and meet one-on-one with a peer coach for a personalized exploration of how to improve at any level!
  • Do you want help with writing papers or presentations? The Writing Center can help you with any writing assignment and at any stage of your writing process.  Check out the Writing Center website to see the many ways you can get assistance with your writing.
  • Are you taking a difficult course and would like to talk through concepts with other students? Check to see if your course is supported by Supplemental Instruction (SI).  SI offers group study tables led by trained peer educators.
  • Are you unsure about what to major in? Maybe you have some ideas, but you’re not 100% certain? Think about meeting with a University Exploratory Studies Program (UESP) advisor.  These advisors specialize in helping students explore and identify possible majors that match their interests and goals.
