Since the campus is operating on a hybrid approach there will be no in person tutoring this semester. However, the Academic Achievement Center (AAC) in Athens is offering free academic assistance programs to all Ohio University students. From tutoring to reinforcing good study habits, they help students overcome difficulties they might have with coursework and collaborate with them in managing the challenges of academic life. Studies show that students who seek academic assistance tend to perform better in their classes and retain more information.
