Center for Student Success

Students encounter new ideas, experiences, and challenges on a daily basis during their four years at Covenant College. It is our goal to provide a safe place for students to work through academic and social challenges with the help of personal advisors who are seeking the academic success and spiritual growth of the student.


The Center for Student Success was established to provide tutoring, personal advising, and tailored resources aimed at helping students succeed during their time at Covenant. The Center works toward these goals by providing:


  • Academic support for students struggling to manage their time or who need assistance in cultivating positive study habits,
  • Personalized attention with our director of student success for students whose major is undeclared or who would like to switch majors, and
  • Services for students with learning disabilities. Those with questions about attention deficit disorder, dyslexia, autism spectrum disorder, or other specific challenges are strongly encouraged to contact the director of academic support.


In addition to day-to-day operations, the Center’s space is often used for collaborative studying, proctored testing for faculty, and individual student assistance.


At Covenant, we believe that every student is created in the image of God, has unique gifts and aptitudes, and that this is a place where students of all abilities can grow, learn, and thrive. Our Center for Student Success works toward that end with each and every student who walks through their doors.
