Our mission in the Office of Academic Support for Athletics is to provide supplemental academic support for all varsity student-athletes at Villanova University in a manner that addresses their unique academic needs.
Primary academic advising and support are received from the faculty advisor assigned to each student-athlete from his or her home college, school or department. Academic progress will be monitored constantly to assure that NCAA and university rules and regulations are met and progress is being made towards graduation. The Academic Support staff will act as a liaison between the academic and athletic communities and address any problems that may arise. The Tutorial Assistance Program and the Tiered Mentoring Program, provided by the Office of Academic Support, insure academic success for all student-athletes.
First Day of Classes - Spring Semester

Begin planning ahead if you will need to request a tutor. The last day to request a tutor is Friday, December 7th. Also, if you know you will need help from the Writing Center for a final paper, consider making an appointment with them now for a future date, to ensure you will be able to meet with someone before they are too busy.
