The Academic Success Center (ASC)

The Academic Success Center (ASC) is a resource center designed to facilitate the student’s successful transition through the university. The director works closely with faculty, the Admission office, Career Development, and the Counseling offices to provide academic assistance as needed.  First-year and transfer students are particularly encouraged to take advantage of the Center’s services to facilitate their transition to Samford University.  

Resources include: 

  • Foundations (a First Year Experience course)
  • Assistance in declaring or changing majors 
  • Tutoring (See Spring 2015 Tutoring schedule.)
  • Samford Success (a program which features enhanced academic advising, peer mentoring, and connection to other campus resources)
