The Center for Academic and Career Development works with students individually to help achieve their academic, personal, and career goals. We work in collaboration with each student to develop good study skills and to enhance academic success.
In the summer of 2019, Concord University's Academic Success Center (ACS) merged with Career Services to form the Center for Academic and Career Development (CACD). Under the administrative purview of Student Affairs, the CACD is a “one-stop-shop” for students requiring support services. The CACD provides direct and referral services for tutoring, advising, financial aid, payment issues, housing, and other impediments that interfere with academic progression.
Specifically, the CACD provides the following services, either directly or through referral:
- Academic advising for undecided majors
- Academic coaching for all freshmen
- Coordination of the tutor.com online tutoring program, piloted in 2008-09 with continued use through the present
- Drop-in tutoring (schedule)
- Coordination and evaluation of UNIV 100 CU Foundations course and UNIV 400 Peer Mentor course
- Coordination of the Parents Club
- Counseling and interviewing students who withdraw from the University
- Liaison services for students with Admissions, Business, Registrar, Financial Aid, and Technology Offices
- Participation/organization of early advising efforts for incoming students
- Resource for faculty/staff
