Academic Support

Burns & McDonnell Student Success Center

The Student Success Center (SSC) supports student development through individualized tutoring, peer-to-peer life skill coaching, and campus programming.  The SSC was developed to provide additional assistance for students academically and help bolster nonacademic life skills.

The SSC employs Student Success Coaches and Academic Tutors.  Our Success Coaches help students identify goals, create individualized study plans, educate on life skills, and support students throughout their academic journey.  Academic Tutors instruct students on course concepts, homework assignments, and test preparation for over 60  S&T courses at the SSC.  Tutoring is available on a walk-in basis during the fall and spring semester, Monday-Friday with no appointment necessary.  Together, Success Coaches and Academic Tutors work to provide supplemental assistance to S&T students and promote an inclusive environment for Miners to learn and grow.

All undergraduate Miners are encouraged to utilize the SSC's free services to get timely support and to enhance their S&T Miner Experience.  For more information visit our website,, contact us at or feel free to stop by 198 Toomey Hall.
