Student Resources

Frederick Douglass Academic Success Center

We are committed to providing a comprehensive academic support system in an environment that supports a culturally and educationally diverse student body and is conducive to the development and success of your academic preparation, transition, and progress toward graduation and beyond.

Our center is a comprehensive, academic enhancement facility. We designed it to offer various interactive programs that encourage student academic skill-building and serve as a useful academic resource within the campus community.
