Academic Skills Center
The overall mission of the Academic Skills Center (ASC) is to address the learning needs, academic performance, and success of all our students. The ASC provides academic support to New England Tech students throughout the entire course of their education. This support begins with assessment, placement and advisement of new students, and continues with our many learning assistance services and programs. In partnership with NEIT’s faculty and administrative staff, the ASC helps students prepare themselves to become more effective, self-directed, lifelong learners.
A Study Skills Workshop is offered for all incoming students prior to the start of their classes. For those who need to build their basic skills, the ASC offers courses in pre-college reading, writing, and math. A variety of enrichment courses are available and provide students with the opportunity to build their reading comprehension along with their writing, research, and language skills.
In addition to providing one-on-one assistance to the entire NEIT student body, the ASC is dedicated to providing professional tutorial support and other learning strategies for students specifically in need of personalized instruction in:
• Math and Physics
• Reading and Writing
• Study Skills and Class Presentations
• Internet Access, Blackboard, and NEIT Email
• MS Office Software Training
Adaptive technology is also available for students who need alternative learning strategies to succeed in their courses.
The ASC is open and available to -students during business hours, Monday to Saturday. For more information about the Academic Skills Center, please call us at 401-739-5000, Ext. 3416 or visit us in Suite S103 at NEIT’s East Greenwich Campus.
