Prospective Students and Families

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is one of seven offices that make up the APEX department, located within the lower level of the Andrews Gault Library. Any College of Wooster student is welcome to use our services and to schedule a meeting with our staff during our operating hours, 8:00 am through 5:00 pm, Monday through Friday.

Our commitment is to empower all students to be intentional and fully engaged in their unique academic experiences. In fact, the ARC supported 955 individual students last year—that’s 50% of the student body!

Whether you are a straight-A student or a student experiencing academic difficulty, the Academic Resource Center (ARC) staff welcomes you to engage with us. We provide individualized support through Academic Life Coaching, Academic Skill Development, Disability Support, English Language Learning, Peer Tutoring, and other programming.

Disability Support Planning

Selecting the right college when you have a disability is a complex and personal process. When considering attendance of the College of Wooster in your process, we recommend that you make an appointment with one of our Academic Resource Center staff members using the link below. In this meeting you can learn about available resources and discuss how your disability can be supported within the curriculum, in the residence halls, and in dining services.
