Academic Help Center

Welcome to the Student Academic Resources Toolbox!

Albright College provides students with many offices dedicated to student academic success. This Toolbox was created for students to provide a centralized location for these offices’ academic support resources and to briefly familiarize students with these many offices and their services. Some of these resources apply across all academic years, while others are limited to the current academic year, and the toolbox has them organized by those categories under each office’s drop down menu.

In order to explore these offices and their services more deeply, or if the resource in question cannot be found in the toolbox, follow the links below to each office’s individual webpage to learn more and to access their contact information.


Current Student Resources

  • Request a Tutor
    • Peer tutoring is available for many 100-200 level courses for up to two hours per week. Students work with a peer tutor to review course content, discuss questions, prepare for upcoming tests and assignments. Most tutors will have successfully completed the course and therefore will be able to provide additional insight and success strategies.
  • Request an Academic Support Meeting
    • An academic support meeting provides a one on one meeting with an Academic Coach to discuss academic success strategies, such as, managing your time, study tips, class preparation techniques, effective communication, connection with other resources on campus, and any other academic support needs.
  • Request Peer Academic Tech Support
    • Peer Academic Tech Support assists students with general academic tech needs, such as Canvas, Kaltura (video making/uploading), Word formatting, basic PowerPoint, navigating the Albright website, etc
  • Computer Labs on Campus
