    The Academic Assistance Center provides a comprehensive and coordinated system for the identification, diagnosis, advisement, counseling, and referral of students to the various academic support services available at K-State. In addition, the AAC provides direct academic support through programs which include:

    Tutorial assistance
    Free tutoring is available in a variety of introductory courses through the EOF tutoring program. Students desiring assistance on a regular basis are assigned to small groups that meet weekly with a peer tutor who assists them with course content and learning strategies. Walk-in tutoring sessions are also available on evenings and weekends.

    The University Experience
    The AAC offers the course EDCEP 111 The University Experience to new students for 1-3 hours of credit. This course provides any new student with a general orientation to K-State and university life. Topics covered include study skills, effective use of campus resources, academic planning, career decision making, and university policies and procedures.

    Math assistance
    The AAC provides a math review class for students desiring basic review of pre-algebra mathematics before actually enrolling in a formal mathematics course. Assistance with Intermediate or College Algebra is available to students enrolling in The University Experience as a part of that course. Students who are unsure of which math course to enroll in may take a 45-minute math placement exam. This assessment is available on a walk-in basis in the AAC.

    PILOTS program
    PILOTS is a cooperative, year-long program meant to provide structure and encourage academic discipline and critical reasoning for qualifying entering freshmen. Students enjoy smaller classes, a computer Reading/Writing Lab, a clustering of support courses, and free tutoring. Classes are geared to a diversity of learning styles.

    Credit by examination
    K-State offers students a variety of quiz-out programs through which a student may earn academic credit in specific courses. The AAC is the campus service agency for the College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) and the DANTES Program. The center will also provide consultation and conduct utility studies for academic departments interested in implementing a credit-by-examination program. Information and registration for the CLEP and DANTES programs are available from the AAC.
