Academic Resources

Professors and Students

Kettering faculty, a world-class group of scholars, dedicate themselves to teaching—in the classrooms and outside of them, in formal and informal settings, all over campus.  One of the most effective strategies for academic success is for students to get to know their professors and ask for help when they need it.  All professors post office hours and are typically available at other times, by appointment.  Encourage your student to visit their professors outside of class.  The benefits of doing so include academic support, as well as networking opportunities and recommendations for employment and graduate study.  

Academic Success Center

Dr. Natalie Candela, Director – 810-762-9775

The Academic Success Center (ASC) offers a variety of services aimed at assisting students to become successful, self-confident, and independent learners. Kettering faculty and staff work together to help students succeed. Students who may benefit from additional support are routinely referred to the appropriate resources. The resources available within ASC include subject tutoring, writing assistance, individualized success coaching, supplemental instruction, and testing accommodations.  Available by appointment or on a walk-in basis, subject tutoring is provided by peer tutors in many math and science courses, while writing assistance is offered by professional consultants. Success coaching, available by appointment only and provided by professional members of the ASC team, assists students in developing effective study habits.
