GWU Offers Programs to Meet Individual Needs of Students


Student and Academic Support

Gardner-Webb University offers a variety of services to create a successful and meaningful academic experience for each student.

Individual needs are met through First-Year programs, academic advising, writing assistance, tutoring, disability resources and technology help.

First-Year programs ensure a successful transition into university life by exposing first-year students to Gardner-Webb services, encouraging them to become leaders, and promoting student success.

Academic advisors provide information and advice concerning academic programs, policies and procedures, and campus resources.

The University’s Writing Center assists with writing skills and the writing process. Under the direction of a faculty specialist in writing, trained undergraduate and graduate tutors provide individual conferences to students. Several types of consultations are provided, including face-to-face, phone, and video conferencing.

The Learning Enrichment and Assistance (LEAP) program provides tutoring assistance for highly requested courses within GWU’s general education curriculum.

The Noel Center for Disability Resources provides reasonable accommodations for qualified students with disabilities to receive equal access to a higher education.
