Academic Support Services

The Academic Support Services Department (ASSD) works in collaboration with all academic programs of CAU to ensure that provided services correlate with curricular offerings. Our goal is to enhance your opportunity for success at CAU, both academically and professionally.

The faculty works closely with students to identify academic challenges that may hinder their satisfactory academic progress. At the Miami campus, students may seek assistance through the ASSD while at the San Juan campus they may do so with the faculty and academic advisors.

At the ASSD, we have qualified and friendly tutors with the knowledge and expertise to work with you on an individual or group basis in the following areas:

  • WRITING:  APA style, research, preparing lesson plans, grammar, and others
  • BUSINESS:  Principles of accounting
  • PSYCHOLOGY:  Theory, research methodology, psychometrics, physiology, test construction, qualifying examination preparation
  • MATHEMATICS:  Statistics, algebra, geometry.

Both on-site and online tutoring will be available to you. Online tutoring is delivered through Plato which is educational software that provides computer-based and e-learning instruction, assessment, and professional development to adult learners.
