Academic Support

Engaged Student

Are some of your classes just difficult? Access information about online, in-person or group tutoring in the Academic Support Center.

Supplemental Instruction (SI)

Also, you can take advantage of our supplemental instruction through small group tutoring assistance for help in some of Southwest’s most difficult courses. Or, if you really enjoyed a particular class during a previous semester, the Academic Support Center is also where you can learn about becoming a Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leader for that course. SI Leaders must maintain a minimum 3.25 GPA, have previously earned an “A” in the course of instruction, and have already earned 15 credit hours.

Student Success Workshops

Ready to reach your goals? Attend Student Success Workshops which include Communication at Southwest, Math and Reading Café, Discovering My Learning Style, and My Next Moves: Job Search Tips. Workshops are fun and informative.

Community Service

Tennessee Promise requires students to complete eight (8) hours of community service before December 1, April 1, and July 1. Stop by the SSP HUB or use the Southwest App to learn about on-campus and local community service opportunities.

Peer Community

The SSP Hub is where a sense of belonging and community begin. Connect with fellow students in similar majors and maybe make a new friend while you increase your knowledge and team-building skills. It’s about networking. Who you know will be just as important as what you know when you enter the job
