Academic Resources at Bethany

Academic Resources is a student retention program designed to help ensure academic success for students of Bethany Lutheran College.

Academic Resources provides support for students through advising sessions, supported study sessions, tutoring services, and Writing Center coaching. Academic Resources provides appropriate accommodations for students with identified disabilities through the creation and implementation of Academic Resource Plans.

Academic Resource Advising

The staff of Academic Resources provides weekly advising appointments with each student in the program. During these sessions, advisors will review attendance, grades, and then work with the students to address concerns. Academic Resources will provide guidance and support while encouraging the student in self-advocacy.

Become a Tutor

Students with the ability and interest to tutor fellow students in Bethany courses can apply to become a tutor by submitting this form to Dr. Carrie Pfeifer. Tutors are able to commit to as much or as little tutoring as their schedule allows and Dr. Pfeifer arranges tutoring sessions in consultation with both the tutor and the student. Tutors are paid for their time and service at the pay rate for work study hours.
