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 undergraduate courses associated with the current UCF semester’s schedule. All Peer tutoring sessions take place online with limited in-person sessions in the SARC Lab located in TCH 117; and also at UCF’s Downtown campus in Dr. Phillips Academic Commons Room 330 . Appointment are necessary and students may leave a tutoring session as needed.
SARC now offers individual peer tutoring for students enrolled in undergraduate courses. Individual tutoring sessions are one hour in length and take place exclusively online. Appointments must be scheduled online in advance. Please note that you can only make appointments for classes you are currently enrolled in.
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 work one-on-one with students to help them to develop important academic and life skills which are necessary to ensure satisfactory academic progress. ACE sessions cover topics such as time management, study skills, test prep, and campus resources.
In the OIPC Program, coaches work one-on-one with students to help them navigate online courses. OIPC sessions cover topics such as Webcourses functions, understanding course modalities, and using the syllabus to plan for success in an online course.
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.
