Common Learning Space

The ASC houses comfortable study space options including accommodations for individuals and small groups. We invite students to use our small computer lab and printer -- and to reserve our Learning Lab, which features moveable seating and technology. Our SPA is home to the ASC’s Student Paraprofessionals, including our Mentors for Academic & Personal Success, Tutors and Tutoring Payroll Coordinator.


The Academic Success Center staff proudly serves Pitt-Johnstown with a commitment to meeting the diverse needs of students. Every student possesses a unique set of skills and strengths that can be used to define their paths to personal and academic success. Our role is to empower and guide students on that journey. The Director and Academic Counselors provide leadership for ASC services and serve as academic advisors to students who have not selected a major, Great Outcomes in Academic Learning (GOAL) counselors and instructors for University Scholarship and Foundations of Learning. Participating in the multiple and varied aspects of the ASC’s programs allows staff to cultivate relationships with most of Pitt-Johnstown’s students. Getting to know the stories of our students contributes to our successful outcomes across the Center’s services.
