Claim Your Future

A graphic shield that displays excellence

Academic Success Center is dedicated to helping students reach their potential with a UMBC degree. We provide centralized support services to all undergraduate students at UMBC. Through a coordinated approach and an unwavering commitment to student success, the Academic Success Center fosters a welcoming environment that provides a one-stop opportunity through Academic Policy, Academic Learning Resources, and Academic Advocacy for students to achieve their academic goals and claim their future with a UMBC degree.

In September 2023, the UMBC Academic Success Center (ASC) gained the Learning Center of Excellence designation from the International College Learning Center Association (ICLCA). There are only four other institutions in the world with an active designation of excellence from ICLCA.
The ASC’s Tutoring Program meets the College Reading and Learning Association’s International Tutor Training Program Certification and the SI PASS Program —ASC’s peer-assisted study sessions— is accredited through the International Center for Supplemental Instruction.
