The Student Academic Support office is committed to helping students achieve intellectual excellence and learn social responsibility. The Student Academic Support staff work with them to create personally rewarding goals and provide them with the tools and resources they may need to manage themselves and the demands of college life both inside and outside the classroom.

Student Academic Support serves and assists students through their academic careers at Hiram College by providing academic support via tutoring, student development courses and programs, providing academic recovery options, academic coaching, and more.

Academic Supports

Hiram College knows that each student has strengths and areas for growth. Sometimes this means getting a chance to relearn or reinforce academic success skills after a semester that results in academic warning, probation, or suspension appeal.

The services highlighted below are just a few of the ways the Student Academic Support staff can help students in their Hiram College journey.

TUTORING

Drop-In Tutoring: Drop-in tutoring is offered throughout the 12-week in the Library. Students can utilize this time to ask questions or receive assistance with course material and study skills. Drop-in hours may vary by course.

1-on-1 Tutoring: Students who need tutoring outside of the available drop-in times are able to request a 1-on-1 tutor. 1-on-1 tutoring is available for ALL students who are taking courses at Hiram College. These services can take place in person or via Zoom.
