Through Student Success Advising, the Student Success Studio encourages, guides, and supports students, helping them navigate the college experience. Student Success Advisors are available to answer questions and connect students with resources across the Wentworth community. Additionally, Student Success Advisors provide the following: 

Degree Planning and Registration

Degree Planning is one of the primary services provided by Student Success Advisors.

Student Success Advisors are also available to assist students with various registration needs. 

Success Workshops

Each semester, Student Success Advisors offer skills workshops, helping students develop their organization, notetaking, study, and time management skills. Students may also schedule one-on-one Academic Skills appointments at any time. 

Customized Success Plans

Student Success Advisors develop customized success plans to help address individual students' concerns and are tailored to target the areas in need.

Learning at a Distance or Online

Learning at a distance, either in a hybrid on online fashion, creates unique challenges. A number of our distance students have set up student groups with tutors, generally arriving an hour before their class begins.  We can also arrange virtual group sessions for online and distance students.  The CAE recommends the following options for distance students:

  • Online Tutoring Appointments -- Students can set up GoToMeeting tutoring appointments with tutors in advance via our scheduling platform. Please email jacobsonj@wit.edu for assistance. 
  • Distance Writing Assistance – Please email your paper to the center. During busy times of the semester (such as during midterms and from two weeks prior to the start of final exams through the final exam period), we will return your paper within 2 business days with comments and suggestions. Please email jacobsonj@wit.edu for online writing assistance.
  • Virtual assistance – The Center for Academic Excellence offers a number of different platforms for distance tutoring.  Please contact the CAE to set up an appointment jacobsonj@wit.edu.
