What is the Academic Resource Center?

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) at Loyola Marymount University provides academic support for all degree-seeking LMU students. It is the mission of the ARC to promote engaged academic citizenship and to provide opportunities for students to become more fully integrated into the rich and diverse culture of the university. Services include tutoring, university advising, the First To Go Program, and the LMU Common Book Program.

The ARC offers tutoring for gateway courses in subjects such as chemistry, psychology, and the modern languages, while undergraduate and graduate tutors in the Writing Center provide one-on-one support for writing assignments in any course.

Students who need assistance locating, understanding, and utilizing their academic planning tools may meet with an ARC University Advisor. University Advisors act as supplemental advisors to LMU faculty and college advisors.

For first-generation college students, the ARC provides special programs, events, and travel opportunities through the First To Go Program. Through the LMU Common Book, in collaboration with the Hannon Library, the ARC conducts events and provides free copies of the Common Book to students in Rhetorical Arts courses.
