Resources

One of our favorite bits of advice to students is “Use your resources,” regardless of their academic standing or degree program. With all of the different resources that Florida Tech offers, it can be difficult to know where to start. We have a few suggestions that can put you on the right path.

Academic Workshops

We make our materials from our academic workshops available for students to download and use for reference. This list is updated every semester with new and revised materials that touch on topics like time management, note-taking, exam preparation, and academic recovery. Check out our current list of workshops here.

Our staff can also present these materials as an on-demand session for your class or student organization. Contact our associate director for more information at vgiguere@fit.edu.

eCurrent News from the ASC 

We use the eCurrent, Florida Tech’s home for many department and student blogs, to post articles related to academic success. Check out some of our more popular posts for help in key undergraduate courses like Composition and Rhetoric (COM 1101) and General Chemistry 1 (CHM 1101), as well as general topics like time management and how to use review sessions to your advantage.

Additional Tutoring Resources for Students

Florida Tech prides itself on its “high tech with a human touch” mantra in all aspects of the campus, including academic assistance. Multiple resources exist for students who need help in their coursework.

  • Academic Support Center – Make appointments online for most undergraduate courses and receive writing assistance from current and former writing instruction faculty. The ASC uses trained peer tutors in one-on-one and small group appointments to assist undergraduates. Walk-ins welcome.
  • Mathematics Advancement Center (MAC) – Run by the Mathematical Sciences Department, the MAC provides assistance for students in many undergraduate mathematics courses. Learn more at http://www.fit.edu/mac/
  • Writer’s Den – Created in partnership with the Communications department, undergraduate students volunteer to assist their peers with all aspects of the writing process under the guidance of faculty members. Learn more at http://cpla.fit.edu/sac/writers-guide/.
  • SmarThinking.com – Offered in partnership with Florida Tech Online, SmarThinking provides online assistance for students when they cannot access on-campus tutoring help.

Find a Place to Study at the Evans Library

Our neighbors at the Evans Library have many spaces for students to work, either alone or in small groups. You can reserve a study room for up to two hours at a time and collaborate with friends on homework or exam review. 

Important Dates and Deadlines

Stay up to date with the campus academic calendar so you never miss a date for registration, financial aid, or campus events. At the Campus Calendar, you can view many events posted by campus departments and community groups as well as deadlines related to registration and graduation.
