What Is The Academic Resource Center?
The ARC is a free service provided to all students. Tutoring sessions are one-on-one and are generally 30 minutes to 1 hour long. Tutors are upperclassmen students who are chosen by their departments and trained in tutoring techniques. They can offer academic advice, explain difficult concepts, help with projects and papers, and act as expert study partners as you prepare for quizzes, tests, and finals.

How the Academic Resource Center Can Help
- TESTS: Our trained tutors can help you study for tests and quizzes. The tutors know their subjects well and have also been trained in study techniques. Bring your books, notes, study guides, and any other study aids like flash cards with you and take advantage of a study partner who has taken the class and done well.
- COMPREHENSION: You can meet for one-on-one help with a difficult class on a regular basis, or just once or twice. Or, if you find college textbooks hard to read and comprehend, a tutor can give you some reading comprehension pointers. If you are performing poorly on reading quizzes, bring the book to the tutor and have him or her ask questions from the chapter to prepare you for the quiz.
- PAPERS: A writing tutor can help look over a paper draft to check for grammar issues and the development of the thesis. The tutor can also help you brainstorm and work through the various drafts. The more drafts and revision you go through, the better the end result will be.
- INFORMATION: We also have resources like informational handouts and documentation style manuals (MLA, APA, AP, and Turabian). These resources are available any time the ARC is open. Some of the handouts are also posted in Forms and Documents in the CRIS system.
- STUDY SKILLS AND TIME MANAGEMENT: Tutors are trained to help with general study skills and time management. If what you’ve been doing for a course hasn’t worked well, a tutor can suggest different ways to study. Remember, the tutor has been through the class already and might have insight into how the professor tests. Tutors can also advise you about how to juggle a 36-hour, full-time college commitment.
- TEST PROCTORING: You and your professor can also make arrangements for you to take make-up tests in the ARC. The ARC is available for this service during all our operating hours, but if you would like a guaranteed quiet testing environment, please come during our regularly scheduled, designated testing hours, which will be posted in Aaron 207.

We have found that many people have trouble knowing which major is right for the career they want to pursue. After all, the major and the career names aren't always the same. Below you will see careers listed along with the best degree we offer which will prepare you for that field. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to call us at 1-800-860-8800.
Reading is an essential component to a successful class experience at college. Thus, in addition to tuition, room and board, you as an incoming student should be ready to purchase any number of textbooks for your classes, and thus should include these items as part of your school budget. Depending on your major, you may expect to purchase on average $300-400 of books per semester. However, some majors require texts that can be quite expensive—the Sciences and Business Administration are examples—and thus you can expect to spend $200-300 more per semester in some cases.
Emmanuel does have an on-campus bookstore open the first few weeks of classes to purchase any number of textbooks, with an option to sell back some (not all) books at the end of the semester. You may opt, however, to purchase books online through an online rental site or a site where you can purchase and keep the books.
Some words of caution for online buyers:
- If you purchase books online, you should make sure that you buy books in a timely manner so that you will have them by the first day of class. Once you register for classes, the textbook information will be available through your printed class schedule. You should make sure that the edition ordered online matches with the text edition on your class schedule.
- It is possible (but happens rarely) that texts initially in the system may change by the first day of class. If that is the case, it is your responsibility to make sure that any text you order online can be returned if it is not the right textbook.
Math Placement: As you know, taking at least one math class is a requirement of every student at most any college. For some majors (especially in the sciences), taking more than one math class will be required. As math sometimes proves difficult for students, we want you to know that we stand ready to help you succeed.
If you scored a 490 or above on your Math SAT (ACT equivalent: 21 or above), then you automatically qualify to be placed in any one of the following general education courses: MA122 (Mathematical Ideas), MA124I (College Algebra Intensive), MA200 (Statistics), and MA210 (Principles of Mathematics). If you scored below a 490 on your SAT, then you will be required to take a test (during your registration period) to ensure proper placement in the right math class for you. For some, depending on your placement score, this may necessitate you take one of our developmental math classes prior to the class(es) you will need in your program of study. All Mathematics and Natural Science majors are required to take the math placement exam.
A word of caution: Even if you automatically qualify for one of the regular classes above, if you know you struggle in math, you may consider taking the placement exam anyway to see where exactly you should be placed. The choice is yours.
Challenge Exam Option: If you have scored above a 490 on the Math SAT, and you feel that you can qualify for a higher math class than what is listed above (MA211—Math for Early Childhood, MA124—Regular College Algebra, MA125—Trigonometry, or MA175—Pre-Calculus), you may take the same placement test (during your registration period) as a challenge exam to place in one of those classes.
Math Placement Test Preparation: Anyone needing or wanting to take the Math Placement Test should consider purchasing and studying SAT Math Preparation published guides (available through bookstores or online websites) prior to your registration day.
