The Center for Academic Excellence

The Center for Academic Excellence provides students with free academic support services including tutoring, facilitated study groups, learning labs, review sessions and learning strategy consultations. We are dedicated to preparing students for academic success. Members of the Center for Academic Excellence work with various departments on campus to ensure that we provide quality support for our diverse student population. We work together with the faculty to address individual concerns and retention issues regarding the needs of all students at Wentworth.

The Center for Academic Excellence is staffed by peer and professional tutors who are available to assist students in many subjects.  Our most popular subjects for tutoring are in mathematics, sciences, and writing.  The Center for Academic Excellence is also staffed by professional writing tutors, who assist students with writing at any stage of the process. Students may make appointments online or by calling 617-989-4545 for one on one tutoring.  All study groups, review sessions, and learning labs times and locations are posted on our website.

Located in 402 Beatty Hall, the Center for Academic Excellence is open Monday through Thursday between 9 a.m. and 8 p.m. and Fridays 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. during the Fall and Spring semesters, with limited hours during the Summer semester.

Academic Advising

The goals of the Wentworth's Academic Advising Program are to advise, to inform, and to mentor.

Academic Advisors help students complete and achieve success within their respective academic programs. Advisors, who are usually Wentworth faculty, guide students in their academic choices/actions and the impact those choices/actions may have in their careers.

Wentworth believes that informed students making educated decisions develop critical thinking and decision-making skills. Such a process aids in developing self-sufficiency and self-confidence needed in the working world.

Accessibility Services

Accessibility Services provides support that allows students with disabilities to participate fully in the life of the community. Wentworth subscribes to the policies set forth in the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA) and in Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which mandate equal opportunity in education programs and activities for students with disabilities.

Students with physical, medical, psychiatric, and learning disabilities are eligible to utilize Accessibility Services to arrange for reasonable accommodations and seek ongoing support. Students interested in receiving accommodations must follow the Accommodation Process and meet with Accessibility Services each semester.

All sessions with the Center for Wellness staff members are free of charge and strictly confidential. No information will be released without the student's permission, except in cases of emergency. The Center for Wellness Counselors are sensitive to issues of gender, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, and disabilities.

If you would like to speak with Accessibility Services, please schedule an appointment by calling 617-989-4390 or visiting the Center for Wellness.
