Academic Success Center

Our student success programs help students make a smooth transition into college. The Academic Success Center (ASC) is MNU’s primary academic resource for MNU students needing academic support. It is geared toward successfully boosting students’ ability to complete their undergraduate, graduate, and professional degrees. Designed with MNU students’ success in mind, our mission is to help students achieve their academic goals. The ASC team works with students to develop a student success plan. Students may secure a tutor for a challenging class, enhance skills necessary to excel in their courses, set up accommodations, and much more. All services are free to MNU students.

Location The ASC is located on the first floor of Mabee Learning Commons.
Types of Tutoring Five types of tutoring are available for MNU students through the ASC: designated walk-in tutoring, small group tutoring, tutoring by appointment, supplemental instruction labs and workshops, and online drop-off writing support. The subject, course, and tutors’ availability determine the type of tutoring offered. Because the ASC team realizes the need for support at all times of the day (and night), tutoring is available 24/7, 365 days a year online via Smarthinking.

Exam & Testing Services
Accommodations/Testing The Coordinator for Student Academic Success provides accommodations for students who have a disability and manages the Testing Center. A disability may include a medical condition, mental health challenge, physical disability, learning disability or a short-term condition related to an accident or illness. Accommodations are meant to remove barriers to learning or to accessing the curriculum. Significant alterations to the curriculum or course delivery are not considered reasonable accommodations. Students who want to take CLEP exams or entrance exams such as the ATI-TEAS exam, should contact the Testing Center.

  • ACT Exam
    The ACT is administered on campus during freshman orientation.
  • CLEP and DSST Exams
    We offer CLEP and DSST exams on demand in the Academic Support Center, allowing MNU students to earn credit for their respective degrees by passing the appropriate exam.
  • ATI TEAS Exam
    The Test of Essential Academic Skills (TEAS) is offered monthly. This exam measures basic essential skills in the academic content areas of reading, mathematics, science, and English and language usage.
