Academic Support is dedicated to helping students refine and strengthen the academic skills necessary for success at Auburn University. The goal of our programs isn't simply to help students pass their classes - we teach students to become independent learners by promoting academic excellence. The strategies that students learn through our programs will enhance their lives at Auburn University and beyond.
Our staff works closely with other departments on campus to specifically offer the following services: Study Partners, peer tutoring program; Supplemental Instruction (SI), peer-directed review sessions; Academic Coaching, individual study skill development sessions; and Study Smart, non-credit course for students on academic suspension.
Auburn University is committed to providing every student with a unique academic experience that prepares them for success. In doing so, we have created a Core Curriculum that promotes the development of essential skills including effective communication, critical thinking, quantitative analysis, aesthetic appreciation, information literacy, scientific theory, informed citizenship, and global awareness. The Core Curriculum also provides students with opportunities for interdisciplinary learning and experiences that foster intellectual curiosity and provides the basis for advanced study in the variety of fields offered by today’s colleges and universities.
The combined collections of the Auburn University Libraries contain over 3.2 million volumes as well as 2.6 million government documents, 2.5 million microforms, and over 148,000 maps. The Libraries receive over 35,000 current periodicals, many which are available online.
The library also provides access to over 227 electronic databases and has over 10 million archival and manuscript items.

Auburn University is required by our regional accreditor, the Southern Association for Colleges and Schools- Commission on Colleges, to provide evidence of how well students perform on a set of student learning outcomes that guide general education (i.e., the Core Curriculum) and to demonstrate how we use this data to improve the Core Curriculum. The data will be used to help Auburn tell a story about the strength of an Auburn education (to our regional accreditor and beyond). When Auburn finds learning areas that can be further strengthened, we will create improvement initiatives to continually improve the Core Curriculum.
Study Partners is a free peer tutoring program offered to currently enrolled Auburn University undergraduate students and sponsored by the Office of Academic Support. Study Partners' mission is to provide quality one-on-one and small group tutoring for a number of undergraduate core courses. Study Partners strive to encourage students to become independent learners by promoting academic excellence, improving study skills, and achieving curriculum specific competencies. Our goal is to provide support to Auburn University students with integrity, skill, and understanding.
