For most students, college is an exploratory time in their lives as they prepare for their future careers. However, many students, referred to as undecided students, are unsure of which major to pursue. Another group of students, known as undeclared students, have a desired major but are unable to formally declare it for various reasons, such as having a low grade-point average or being on academic probation. To help this special population of students, Undecided/Undeclared Students Services at CAS provides career and major exploration and academic monitoring and counseling.

The objective of Tutoring and Learning Support Services at CAS is to enable Kean student to gain competence and achieve excellence despite the time limitations imposed by everyday obligations, as well as the varying level of background experiences and academic preparations faced by many of our undergraduates.

Tutoring is available by appointment and on a drop-in basis. Sessions are one-on-one or in groups. The Center for Academic Success selects and trains both student and professional tutors.

Tutoring focuses on areas in which students most often experience difficulty, from introductory-level through senior-level courses. Tutorial activity is adapted to course content and objectives, and is an extension of classroom instruction. The goal is to provide all students the opportunity to achieve the highest grade possible and also to master the academic content needed to progress in their academic careers.

Tutoring and Learning Support Services also works closely with departments such as the Spanish Speaking Program and the English as a Second Language Program to assist these students populations in addressing their specialized needs.

WRITING CENTER

Phone (908) 737-0317

At the Kean University Writing Center, peer writing coaches provide non-judgmental, one-on-one support for all writers.  We work with writers at all stages of the writing process – whether you are brainstorming ideas, or working on the final stylistic changes.


It is a place where you can learn to:

  • gather ideas, find a focus, and develop pre-writing
  • get “unstuck” – and get writing finished on time
  • draft, organize, and develop work at any point in the writing process
  • manage long or difficult writing projects that may need to be written in parts
  • make effective revisions
  • make informed choices about language and writing conventions
  • develop strategies for proofreading

Tips for Success:
  • Please be on-time (sessions are 50 minutes each
  • Come when you first get the assignment.
  • Come with a goal (Outline/Draft/ Brainstorming)
  • Come more than once.

The Center has several computers, but if you have your own laptop it will ensure that you can work on electronic documents.  If you do not have a laptop, bring your work on a USB memory device, or send it to yourself in your email so you and your writing coach can work on one of the Center’s computers.
