Refer a Student for Academic Support

Referring a student for academic support is easy! Just follow these steps:

  • Visit our online scheduling system: Accudemia.
  • Log in using your MyGWC credentials. 
  • Under the Referrals section, click the New Referral button.
  • Complete the form and click the Save Changes button.
You can decide which resources are appropriate for the student or you can leave it to us. You can also decide whether the student receives a copy of the referral. Either way, the Academic Success Center will reach out to the student to connect them with the appropriate services.
Academic Support Resources

The Academic Success Center offers a variety of resources to help our students succeed in their classes.  See the ASC Resources [PDF] for details. 

Students can access our resources by joining our Canvas page. Be sure to share the link with your students:

Tutor Hiring and Training

The ASC hires peer tutors before the fall and spring semesters. If you have a student you think would make a good tutor, please encourage them to apply (our application is accessible from our website during our recruitment periods). If we decide to hire the student, we will contact you for your recommendation.

All tutors are recommended by faculty and trained according to the College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA) certification standards.  

Embedded Tutoring Program

The Embedded Tutoring Program at GWC places tutors in a variety of classes to help increase student learning, success, and retention. Embedded tutors work in and/or outside the classroom under the instructor's guidance to help students understand course concepts and enhance student engagement.

To request an embedded tutor for your class, you must complete the online application. The application is available on our website around mid-semester to request an embedded tutor for the following semester. Please visit our Embedded Tutoring Program page for more details.
