Student Success Resources
A college education takes plenty of individual hard work and dedication. It also takes the right help at the right time. With people like the North Park faculty and staff at your side, you’ve got a lot going for you. Use the links below and to the left to learn more about the academic assistance tools and resources the University offers.
Every student needs (and deserves) timely, helpful, and accessible advice and encouragement. Learn more about how academic advising works at North Park University, and how a faculty advisor can help you achieve success.
With a student-to-faculty ratio of only 13 to 1, North Park University professors are also incredibly accessible and an invaluable source of academic assistance in many ways.
Peer Academic Assistance
Group Tutoring (GT) and Supplemental Instruction (SI) are academic assistance programs that use peer-assisted study sessions scheduled throughout the week. Here, students can compare notes, discuss readings, and develop study skills. These sessions are free for students.
The North Park University Writing Center provides free assistance to all undergraduate students through our drop-in center and through a writing fellows program that pairs students in Core Curriculum courses with trained Writing Advisors.
Declaring Your Major
North Park University encourages all undergraduates to declare a major by the end of their first year as a student. Students are invited to discuss their potential majors, as well as larger academic and life goals, with their assigned faculty advisors.
