Support Services

Westmont offers support in two areas: academic skills and supplemental instruction.

Academic Skills
The Successful Scholars Seminar (APP 002), especially for students new to Westmont, is a six-week, non-credit course that provides an extended orientation to academic aspects of college life. If you have any questions, contact academic advising and disability services at x6159. If you would like to participate in the course you may add it to your course schedule through the Registrar's office.

Supplemental Instruction
Supplemental instruction is tailored to individual courses. It usually takes the form of exam review sessions, homework labs, or small group tutorials led by students who have done well in that class.

These programs meet the needs of most of our students most of the time. However, you may have problems in a particular class or feel you are not progressing in the way you would like. Don’t hesitate to contact the director of academic advising and disability services if you need additional help, x6159.
