ARC welcomes students for Fall 2017 semester

Welcome, students! As the Fall semester begins, we want to be sure you know about the Academic Resource Center (ARC).

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is a resource for all students. Graduate, undergraduate, online, Webster Groves, and non-Webster Groves students are all encouraged to use ARC services, including testing, tutoring and writing assistance; assistive technology; disability accommodations and support; academic counseling; advocacy and direction to help you meet your needs; and more.

You may find more information about our services and our staff members at, and resources are available on this website as well.
