Academic Support

The rigor of college-level academics can be overwhelming, and the transition from high school to college is sometimes difficult.

Academic counseling

For assistance in making this transition, students are encouraged to take advantage of academic counseling services offered by the college.

Individualized academic counseling is available by appointment and can include strategies related to more effective time management; the organization of study sessions and exam reviews; and the preparation and revision of research projects.

Students interested in assistance should contact the academic support coordinator for information and appointments.

ESL services

Students whose first language is a language other than English are encouraged to contact the academic support coordinator for information about the school’s ESL services.

The Writing Lab

The Writing Lab is a student-led writing center located on the second floor of the Jannes Library and Learning Center. Students are encouraged to bring in their writing assignments for assistance and revision, as well as for guidance during the early stages of research. KCAI’s Writing Lab is a walk-in writing center, open from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Thursday.
