plan for success

"APEX" stands for "Action Plan for Educational Excellence." We want students to embrace a growth mindset that says, "I can achieve my goals! No matter what my background is or what obstacles I need to overcome." We want to help students proactively plan to meet their academic goals, whatever those may be.

To support this mission (and our students!), we offer programs such as Academic Coaching, Peer Tutoring, Group Study Sessions, and Workshops. No matter if a freshmen wants to start off strong or if a mid-semester sophomore, junior, or senior would like a bit of help catching up, we're here to help. Take a look around our site or stop by Doc Bryan 153.
