The Academic Achievement Center (AAC) offers free academic assistance programs to all Ohio University students. From tutoring to reinforcing good study habits, we 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. We encourage all students to take advantage of our services.

Students can become officers in the US Air Force or Space Force while earning their undergraduate degrees! Learn about the AFROTC program at OHIO University.
