Center for Academic Success

The Center for Academic Success (CAS) provides students with many services that can help them succeed in their time at Furman.  They offer one-on-one meetings or small group workshops on study skills, time management, note-taking, exam preparation, and academic counseling.  Among the staff are a liaison to the SOAR office, a liaison to the Athletic program, and a professional ESL & Writing Specialist who can meet one-on-one with students.

CAS is also the home of two peer-support programs: Tutoring (available in almost any subject) and the Writing & Media Lab (where students can get one-on-one consultations with trained student consultants in writing and multimedia composition).  CAS is in the Library on the Ground Floor.

The SOAR office works with many departments on campus to provide reasonable accommodations for students with medical, physical or psychological conditions.  The SOAR website contains a wealth of information about academic accommodations and other accommodations, including a page of Quick Links for access to the most frequently requested services.  SOAR is in the Earle Infirmary; enter through the back of the building.
