Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction Center

As an institutional effort to enhance student success, Preparation, Resource, and Information for Success, Excellence, and Merit (TuSIC) is revered as a leader among leaders in assisting student to achieve star power. Students who value academic integration* should see TuSIC as a guide to achieving excellence. Under the direction of years of service in helping students arrive at graduation status, TuSIC helps students to achieve an academic identity. Participation is strongly recommended to achieve graduation status.
