    About Academic Success


    Our purpose is to support students’ academic experience by offering writing center and tutoring consultations, as well as academic skills assistance. The Hamline Academic Support unit is committed to helping Hamline students develop the skills needed to succeed academically and become independent, lifelong learners. It is our goal to foster an environment that supports and encourages individuals by creating a positive, open and intellectually-stimulating environment.

    Academic Success is located in the lower level of Bush Library.

    Our core hours are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

    Additional tutoring and Writing Center Hours are on the schedules available on the specific web pages.
