The Academic Resource Center (ARC) at MassArt provides services and resources to support instruction, enhance student academic success and retain a diverse student body. Academic Advisors, Success Coaches, Content Tutors, and Writing Specialists in the ARC guide students in identifying strengths, managing challenges, formulating study plans, and developing the communications skills necessary to share their artistic vision. ARC also serves as a space for peer-to-peer interactions that help in the transition to college level academics. Student Accessibility Services works closely with faculty and ARC staff to ensure that students with disabilities are provided the necessary accommodations and supports that assist in their success at MassArt. The ARC works closely with the Academic Compass program, transfer students, and other college-wide efforts to support a diverse student body.
