Welcome to SARC! We are the learning center on campus where students can access high-quality academic support programs and services, which you can read about below. All of our offerings help UCF students develop college-level study skills and achieve the highest standard of academic excellence.
SARC provides free small group peer tutoring to students enrolled in selected undergraduate courses offered each semester at UCF. Peer tutoring sessions take place at 3 locations: SARC at Trevor Colbourn Hall (TCH) 117, SARC@CECS in the Engineering II Atrium, and SARC@UCF Downtown in the Dr. Phillips Academic Commons (DPAC), Room 330. Some tutoring sessions are hosted online through Zoom and also at UCF’s Downtown campus. No appointment is necessary.
Individual (One-on-One) peer tutoring is available for students enrolled in selected undergraduate courses. These tutoring sessions are one hour in length and take place exclusively online. Appointments are required and must be scheduled online in advance. Please note that you can only make appointments for classes we offer in which you are currently enrolled. For a list of the classes we support, see the “Fall 2021 Available Courses List” link above.
Supplemental Instruction (SI) provides a series of weekly study sessions for students taking historically difficult courses. In SI, you will be guided through course material by your SI leader, a student who has taken the course and earned an “A.” SI Leaders attend the courses they support and use their knowledge to help you master course content and develop effective study skills.
In the (ACE) Program, academic coaches help students develop important academic and life skills such as organization, time management, study skills, online learning, and goal setting. ACE coaches can meet with students regularly throughout the semester to provide students the opportunity to check in on their progress, stay accountable for the goals and action plans devised in previous sessions, and become more engaged in campus life and organizations.
Each semester SARC provides all UCF students an opportunity to continually enhance their learning and study skills through a series of Academic Success Workshops. Topics include test preparation, time management, textbook reading, note-taking, and more. Workshops are live streamed and recorded via the link in the schedule then uploaded to the SARC YouTube channel.
