Academic Support for Current Students

Welcome to the Student Academic Support Center (SASC)!  Our office understands that college can be difficult and our goal is to support students in their academic journey. It can be difficult knowing where to get help for your academic needs.  Use this website to help find answers to those questions or contact us via email at, or by phone at (616) 331-3588. 

Career & Major Interest Exploration

Deciding on an academic major can seem like an overwhelming choice.  Many factors have to be taken into consideration when making this selection.  SASC encourages students to follow these three steps:

  1. Self-Exploration
  2. Narrow choices by majors and careers
  3. Focus on developing final choice


SASC Tutoring provides tutoring for all 100 - 200 level courses offered at GVSU.  Grand Valley students are provided 1 hour of FREE tutoring every week in each class.  Tutoring is provided in small group settings.  For more information, or to request a tutor, click here.

 Learning Skill Assistance

SASC wants to help students develop their personal and academic goals.  To assist towards this end we provide a number of learning skill assistance options.  For more information, and to start developing your personal learning style, click here

Academic Advising

If you have a declared major at Grand Valley, SASC encourages you to visit the academic advising center for that major.  You can find a list of advising centers here.  If you are in-between majors or have general education requirement questions, SASC advisors are available to help.  Contact the Student Academic Success Center at (616) 331-3588 to schedule an appointment with an SASC advisor or to ask about available walk-in hours.
