The Academic Skills Center offers academic support services and programs for all students, full and part-time, as they matriculate at King's College. The mission of the Academic Skills Center is to create an opportunity for students to enhance active learning, increase retention, and develop overall academic and personal strategies by providing individualized attention to develop life-long learners.  The goal of our services is to maximize a person’s educational potential while supporting independence and advocacy skills.  In addition, we look forward to working with non-traditional and Military and Veteran students at King's College

King's College Tutoring

  1. Tutoring will use online Sign-up forms. There are no fees.
  2. Tutoring is IN-PERSON with a virtual option as requested which will use ( Zoom, Microsoft Teams, GoBoard, or Facetime, etc.)  
  3. As always, we suggest contacting an instructor as the first step in support.
  4. We also suggest instructional videos- youtube and Khan Academy have many available.

Accessibility, Accommodations, and Disability Services

The process has several easy steps:
  1. Submit Documentation (see criteria ) to the Director of the Academic Skills Center (ASC)/Disabiity Services (DS) Coordinator. 
  2. Meet with the Director of ASC/Disability Services Coordinator to discuss your strengths, barriers, and accommodations in an interactive intake session in-person or on Zoom.
  3. Director/DS Coordinator will review all information and determine appropriate accommodations which are communicated in an Accommodation Letter sent to the student in email.
  4. The student shares the Accommodation Letter with instructors. Faculty will carry out accommodations for those who disclose a disability and request their accommodations through the Academic Skills Center/Disability Services Coordinator process .  
  5. The student keeps open communication through the semester with faculty and the Director/DS Coordinator to fully use accommodations.

Students with a King's College email account can use the New Accommodations and Documentation Upload Form to start the accommodation process. Those with no King's College email can send documentation to the Disability Services Coordinator at sheriyech@kings.edu or fax 570-825-9049 attention Yech. Any Military member or Veteran who was wounded, disabled, or is currently experiencing medical or mental health struggles impacting academic work, is encouraged to reach out to learn more about support and services.
