Student Services


For Day Students

Office of Student Success

The Office of Student Sucess (OSS) department provides comprehensive services that support Indiana Tech students’ academic achievement from the point of their admission through degree completion. Among the services offered are: tutoring programs and academic skills development, support for students with disabilities and academic coaching with special emphasis on advising services for first year students.

Academic coaches work in conjunction with program faculty advisors to assist students in making decisions about major areas of study. First-year students are assigned an academic coach who will offer personalized, one-on-one support in areas such as course selection, choice of major and understanding the program curriculum. Each student will develop an academic plan that will guide their academic journey from enrollment to graduation. Coaches will also provide the following services:

  • General education advising
  • Academic resources and services
  • Major and minor options
  • Intended major changes
  • Graduation requirements
  • Academic probation advising

Tutoring

Students utilizing the tutoring services are asked to bring their books are encouraged to bring their books, notes, and laptops (if needed) to their tutoring appointments.

Tutoring is available Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday 7 to 9 p.m. The tutoring center is located in the Office of Student Success in the Andorfer Commons.

Information Technology Services

Indiana Tech is committed to providing students a level of technological competency that will meet or exceed the needs of employers who hire our graduates. By graduation, depending on the degree program, a student will have competency on various types of computers and software. Due to the changing nature of technology, our curriculum emphasizes becoming productive with common hardware and software concepts rather than a particular brand of computer or software package.

In order to support this integration and to encourage the use of technology, Indiana Tech provides a variety of computing facilities for its faculty and students. With approximately 434 student computers at 16 locations, our primary facilities are well equipped for the utilization of technology both in and out of the classroom. Our continuing commitment to technology improvements is an important piece of our academic programs.
