Academic Resource Center (ARC)

The Academic Resource Center organizes advising, with special emphasis on first and second year undergraduates, student athletes, nursing and health science majors, as well as STEM students in preparatory programs. It is home to the Pioneers Scholars Program for first-generation students and assists in organizing the six learning communities that Bellarmine offers. The ARC offers academic support services to students in the form of coordinating Freshman Focus, individual or group tutoring sessions and writing consultations through the Tutoring Center and Writing Center. The ARC also provides GRE preparation resources for Bellarmine students and alumni.

In addition, the ARC is the home of Parent Communication efforts, and creates and distributes monthly e-newsletters that help inform, educate, and connect parents of Bellarmine students.

The ARC is located on the B-level of the W.L. Brown Lyons Library. Advising, scheduled tutoring, and Writing Center appointments take place on the B-level.
