Success in the classroom happens when students can take charge of their learning. Whether it’s fine-tuning tactics for time management or brushing up on the nitty gritty details from the syllabus, our academic support services are here to help students thrive.
higgins academic center
From orientation to learning support, we fondly call it the “HAC.” It’s where students of all abilities jumpstart their academic careers.
When it comes to choosing courses, you won’t do it alone. Academic advising starts even before you matriculate in your first-year, and grows with you.
mcgraw- page library
The library is our academic hub, where we advance knowledge, spark creativity, and connect communities. Search collections; try out the Makerspace; access books, laptops, and more.
orientation and transition for new students
A strong start matters! That’s why student leaders called Captains welcome new YJs and help them navigate their transitions with a special first-semester class called Yellow Jacket Success Strategies.
They are the ones you’ll remember forever – mentors, advisors, and champions for your academic journey.
a little help from my friends
Student tutors are nominated by faculty to offer support for their peers in nearly every subject taught at the College, and coaching for better work habits and study skills. The Office of Subject Tutoring and Learning Support selects and trains tutors, who are nationally certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). Tutoring is available for nearly all subjects taught at the College, and is FREE to all RMC students.
Randolph-Macon’s Office of Disability Services assists students who qualify with identifying and obtaining reasonable accommodations to provide access and support students’ academics.
written and oral communication support
Supporting critical skills for class and life, the tutor staff in Academic Writing & Speaking provide students with peer writing and oral communication support. Writing Tutors can help students with their writing at any stage of the process and in any discipline. Speaking Tutors assist students with planning, putting together, and delivering speeches, presentations, and other forms of oral communication.
INFORMATION AND INTERVENTION
Our campus-wide commitment to students’ success means issue-spotting and intervening. Our evidence-based engagement strategies help students connect with the resources they need.
office of the registrar
The Office of the Registrar maintains the official academic records for current and former students. The office publishes the Academic catalog; coordinates registration; produces the final exam schedule; handles all corrections to student data; verifies enrollment and degrees; processes transcript requests; and prepares and mails diplomas.
The Office of the Provost supervises academic departments, and all academic support functions of the College. The Provost also provides leadership for the Athletics department, which is intricately linked to students’ overall experience at RMC.
