Whether you need assistance with writing, subject-specific tutoring, or personalized academic coaching, Academic Fuel has your back.

Writing Center: Crafting Excellence
Writing is essential in any academic setting, and the FSC Writing Center is your go-to resource for sharpening your writing prowess. The Writing Center offers individualized sessions via WCOnline, providing you with three convenient options:

  1. In-person sessions: Meet with writing experts face-to-face for personalized guidance.
  2. Asynchronous online: Submit your paper and receive feedback on the same day through WCOnline.

Creating a WCOnline account allows you to view the Writing Center's schedule, book appointments, and receive handy appointment reminders.

Scholars Strengthening Scholars (S3): Peer-to-Peer Learning
Sometimes, you need a peer's perspective to grasp challenging subjects. Enter Scholars Strengthening Scholars (S3). This program pairs you with a Peer Scholar who can provide valuable assistance in specific subject areas. Like a study group, you can ask questions of the peer scholar and classmates; they'll help you complete homework, prepare for exams, and feel confident in your understanding of the course's content.. To sign up for an S3 session, visit WCOnline.

PASS: Master Your Courses
PASS, or Peer Assisted Study Sessions, is your key to taking those challenging courses. These sessions, led by PASS Leaders – students who have already conquered the course– offer an opportunity to engage with the material, collaborate with classmates, and learn effective study techniques. Whether you schedule your PASS session on WCOnline or walk in during the designated time, you'll gain valuable insights into the course content.
