Student Success Studio

The atmosphere in student services is a friendly, accepting and personal one where students feel welcomed and accepted for who they are. Each student is challenged and supported to grow as an individual.

  • Tutoring

    Your Success is Our Goal

    Graceland strives to provide you with excellent academic support as you navigate the rigors of college life. With that aim in mind, we offer group tutoring sessions for specific courses across the curriculum. These tutoring sessions are available for all Graceland students and are offered for as many specific classes as possible. Our tutors are knowledgeable, trained peers, who have successfully taken the course they tutor. These sessions consist of reviewing course materials and providing extra help in a positive group setting.
