Any incoming student identified by The Office of Admissions as potentially needing academic support services is reported to OAS. Students are typically identified through standardized test scores, grade point average, and other identifiers on the student’s application.
Academic Support Services
Students who are identified as needing assistance in writing, critical reading, study skills, computing, or quantitative reasoning are given appropriate assistance through services offered by the OAS. Depending on student needs and preferences and office availability, students are given support in these areas through one or more of the following ways:
• One-on-one assistance with Academic Services staff
• One-on-one tutoring with a faculty or student tutor
• Small workshop seminars organized through the Office of Academic Services
• Self-study with appropriate resources
FTC Middletown holds regular workshops on the following topics:
• Study Skills
• Subject-level tutoring classes in math, computing, chemistry, and statistics
• Student-led study groups, in collaboration with registered academic student clubs, or OAS.
• Other workshops will be offered based on demand
OAS provides assistance for students who wish to transfer to other colleges and/or universities. It is the students’ responsibility to follow through on all necessary steps to confirm that the receiving institution is willing to transfer credit for courses taken at FTC Middletown.
