The Ohio State University at Marion


The Academic Success Center (ASC) fosters the mission of Ohio State Marion, preparing our students for their professions within a global society. Students’ cultural, social, linguistic and educational backgrounds may not have prepared them for the demands of university coursework, and we are also aware that everyone learns in different ways. Our services focus on helping students understand what is involved in the learning process, discover knowledge, and build upon that knowledge. We provide outstanding tutoring services in a variety of subjects and learning strategies. To promote active learning, when working with students, we scaffold information, and at the same time, we encourage students to take ownership of their learning by implementing strategies to cope with challenges.

Everyone is welcome at ASC our practices are also reinforced in accordance with diversity and inclusion. We endeavor to establish a welcoming and structured center, where students feel safe and supported. We also maintain professional relationships with all populations on campus: students, faculty, and staff, so as to assist students in succeeding in the classroom and at the university.

The Academic Success Center (ASC) provides:

  • Writing assistance in any subject
  • Math assistance
  • Free peer tutoring available both one-to-one and in small groups in most subjects


  • eight computer stations
  • free printing and scanning
  • a free copy machine
