Find Resources That Help You Thrive at the ARC

At Drexel, we are dedicated to connecting you with academic resources that will position you for continued growth and success. The ARC (Academic Resource Center), located in the Korman Center, serves as an integrated hub of on-campus academic support services focusing on providing tutoring, academic coaching, workshops, specialized courses, and more — effectively streamlining your experience and making it easier to access the tools that best fit your individual needs.

Some of the services that can be currently found at the ARC include:

Officially joining the ARC as of spring 2023, the Academic Center for Engineers (ACE) is a supplementary resource for engineering, business and engineering, or FYES STEM students, that supports primarily first- and second- year undergraduate courses plus general support for Python and the Drexel Registration process.

Biology tutoring provides support for select 100 level BIO classes. Check with your BIO instructor or your online course page for information.
Chemistry tutoring provides support for CHEM 100–200 levels. All enrolled students should have access to tutoring through Blackboard Learn or from their instructors.
The Drexel Writing Center (DWC) helps all members of the Drexel community think through and develop their writing projects, primarily in a one-on-one setting. Synchronous online appointments are available through their scheduling system.

The Math Resource Center provides support for students taking courses offered by the Department of Mathematics. Visit the Math Resource Center website for information on remote/face-to-face tutoring or check with your Math instructor.

While not currently located at the Korman Center, the following resources are directly partnering with ARC to provide access to support and services:


The Center for Learning and Academic Success Services (CLASS) is one of Drexel's best resources for empowering students to develop the skills and strategies needed to foster academic success. From individualized academic coaching and learning support to group workshops, CLASS aims to meet the needs of all Drexel Dragons, regardless of discipline or major.

International Student Support

Drexel University is proud to support students from historically underrepresented populations (African American, Indigenous Peoples of the Americas, and Latino) as they venture into Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) disciplines through our participation in the Greater Philadelphia Region Louis Stokes Alliance for Minority Participation (LSAMP) consortium and the Bridge to the Doctorate (BTD) Fellowship program. 

Drexel Campus

The Learning Alliance is a network of offices on campus and online that support students' academic success. If you require support for a specific subject, then you are encouraged to visit the Learning Alliance and reach out to the relevant discipline-specific resource.
