ACCESS Mission and Services

Our Mission: The guiding mission of ACCESS is to provide opportunities for students to build academic skills and promote academic adjustment, thereby improving academic success, retention and graduation rates through academic support services. Further, ACCESS supports the diversity of the NIU student body by targeting students for its services who are most academically at-risk, either by their admission status or by their background/deficiencies in specific academic skills areas.

Our Services: ACCESS provides walk-in tutoring services, one-on-one tutoring services, study groups and supplemental instruction for some specific courses and other support services for students who require academic assistance to be successful in their chosen courses and majors.

 

A+ Program

The A+ Program is a FREE NIU service which provides one-on-one or small group instruction on an appointment basis in effective reading or study strategies.

 

PAL(Peer Assisted Learning)

Peer Assisted Learning is NIU's FREE tutoring service for undergraduates. We provide one-on-one appointment and walk-in tutoring for students who are interested in regular, weekly tutoring assistance.

 

SI(Supplemental Instruction)

Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a FREE peer tutoring program designed to enhance student performance and academic achievement in historically difficult courses.
