Welcome to the Student Success Center!

The Meredith College Student Success Center (SSC) provides students with academic support services, including success coaching, academic planning, and peer tutoring, that promote equity, reinforce and extend learning, and move students toward timely graduation. We also help students develop self-efficacy and become advocates for their own education.

Academic Planning

An academic advisor works with a student at a table in the corner of his office.

Academic advisors at the Student Success Center can assist students with academic planning. Academic advisors work with students to investigate and identify areas of interest, implement plans for academic success, and connect students with the resources to help them meet their academic and professional goals.

To meet with an academic advisor, schedule an appointment.

The Student Success Center also offers faculty advising development and support. For more information, please see Faculty Advising

Success Coaching

Success coaching offers students academic and professional support and mentorship throughout their time at Meredith. Success coaches can help students connect with resources and build professional relationships across campus. Students can also work with success coaches to identify their goals for the future and develop plans to meet those goals.

To meet with a success coach, schedule an appointment.

The Learning Center offers free peer-tutoring across a variety of subjects. Students can schedule thirty minute online or in-person sessions. Tutors can also embed in a course to collaborate with faculty and support students with specific course content. For more about the Learning Center, please see About the Learning Center.

The Learning Center is located on the bottom floor of Carlyle Campbell Library in Room 020. The Learning Center is open Monday through Thursday from 8:00am to 5:00pm and on Friday from 8:00am to 2:00pm.

To attend a session with a peer tutor, schedule an appointment or walk-in to see if a tutor is available to assist you.

Testing Center

A student employee at the Learning Center smiles as she works on her laptop next to a vase of flowers.

The Testing Center is a quiet setting for students to take assessments outside of the classroom. Students and professors who mutually agree that the Testing Center would be the best setting for the student to take their assessment can schedule an assessment by filling out the Testing Center Proctoring Form at least a week in advance. To learn more about the Testing Center, please see the Testing Center website.

Handling Concerns

The Student Success Center is committed to positive and empowering tutoring experiences for students, faculty, and staff at Meredith College. However, the Student Success Center recognizes that grievances can occur in the day-to-day operations of any campus service, and the director is committed to handling any concerns from students, faculty, or staff in a timely, fair, and effective manner.

Students, staff members, faculty members, and administration have the right to register a complaint with the director of the Student Success Center, either face-to-face or through our online submission form. Every person who comes into contact with the Student Success Center has the right to be heard and to have their concerns acted upon.

Concerns may take the form of, but are not limited to, a complaint about a wrong that causes harm or resentment and is grounds for action, or an allegation that something (a process, for example) imposes barriers or discloses information about a student without consent or causes inequity. It is also possible to report a conflict of goals or values that manifests through overt or implicit opposition, actions, or statements.

The same form is used to provide information about complaints, incidents, suggestions, and positive experiences. All online submissions are delivered to the director via email immediately. The director will hear or read every concern within twenty-four hours of receipt and will act up on the concern within one week of receipt.

The Student Success Center director commits to:

  1. Escalating any egregious misconduct or intent to harm oneself or others to the Dean of Students office immediately upon receipt.
  2. Notifying all parties of the existence of a grievance within one week.
  3. Focusing on the re-establishment of good relationships and positive outcomes through conciliation and negotiation.
  4. Seeking third-party-disinterested advocates if necessary or helpful.
  5. Scheduling a meeting to discuss resolution of the conflict.
  6. Taking notes at the meeting and maintaining records of the concerns and their resolutions.

Grievances may be submitted anonymously; however, it is not possible to update an anonymous person on the attempts at resolving the issue.
