AUC provides the following services to students who need academic guidance or support.
In academic matters, mutual responsibility between students, faculty, administrators and staff, requires cooperation and trust in maintaining the details and spirit of the academic integrity. This ensures that a high level of ethics and honesty will be maintained within the academic programs (The Center for Academic Integrity).
Every AUC freshman works with a freshman advisor to choose classes, plan a course of study and consider academic goals. When students declare a major, they can choose an advisor — an experienced professor — in their field. Every advisor serves as a resource and a sounding board — a professional with deep knowledge of AUC and the wider world.
The First-Year Experience Program is the new mandatory program designed to familiarize incoming freshman students with the knowledge and expectations of higher education at AUC, the skills to become self-reliant, the values of respect and appreciation for the institution, civic responsibility and academic honesty, as well as expose them to the social and extracurricular activities of university life. It is a four-day program where AUC faculty, staff and student leaders participate in its implementation.
Staffed by a team of qualified peers and professionals, the Student Mentoring Unit sponsors workshops and one-on-one sessions designed to offer focused advice and practical guidance to all students who wish to improve the quality of their academic work.
The writing center helps graduate and undergraduate students improve their communication abilities by providing services for writing, presenting, and critical thinking. The center also also assists faculty in the effective use of writing components in their courses and professional work.
