Academic Resource Center

Hours: Monday–Thursday, 9:30am–9:00pm, Friday, 9:30am–12:00pm, Sunday, 6:00pm–9:00pm

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) at Nichols College helps students become stronger, more confident learners and is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). We assist students in developing the necessary skills and strategies for successful learning and realizing their academic goals. Our primary goal is to help Nichols College students reach their academic potential through peer assistance.

The ARC peer tutors are all Nichols College undergraduates who are successful in their studies and welcome the opportunity to help their classmates succeed. All tutors go through extensive training toward international certification and must maintain at least Level I CRLA certification, and they must maintain a minimum of a 3.3 GPA at Nichols. Many are also Resident Assistants, leaders of Student Government, Teaching Assistants, and more. So our self-proclaimed Nerd Herd know what it means to be a student at Nichols, and they genuinely want to help all of our students succeed.

Tutors can assist students with course material and with developing and improving successful learning strategies. Our services are available to all undergraduate students for no additional charge, and they include:

  • One-on-one tutoring
  • Group tutoring
  • Weekly tutoring (individual or group)
  • Math Help Sessions
  • Writing Fellows Program

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the ARC at 508-213-2200 or at
