Academic Support


The following services are available in the Badgett Academic Support Center (BASC) to enhance your educational experience. These services are provided at no extra cost to the student.

Academic Coaches – Academic Coaches are assigned to each Academy within the University structure. New students are assigned to an Academy based on their choice of major. Undecided majors can select an Academy based on a general area that they might have an interest in exploring. The Academic Coaches are designed to assist new students in their transition to college and to provide support to new students throughout the first year. Academic Coaches will also help new students to connect with faculty members, academic clubs, activities, and other students within their assigned academy. Students are encouraged to contact their academic coach with any question or need they have as they transition to college and also throughout the first year.

Advising – All academic advising by faculty is coordinated through the Office of Academic Support. New students are assigned an academic advisor to assist them in selecting classes each semester that are appropriate for completing their selected degree program. A student’s academic advisor should be the student’s primary contact person for any academic related questions or issues. All undecided majors are assigned an advisor in Academic Support that will assist them in choosing courses as well as choosing a major.

Disability Services - Helping remove barriers is the goal of Disability Services. Students who have a documented physical, psychological, emotional, and/or learning disability can work with Disability Services to receive necessary accommodations. Students who want to inquire about required documentation and possible accommodations may contact the office of Disability Services.

Introductory Studies – Introductory Studies is designed to provide academic advising to students taking developmental coursework and to facilitate services to accommodate their learning needs. Introductory Studies courses are designed to ease the transition into university level mathematics, English, reading, and university success skills. Additionally, the Introductory Studies office conducts Academic Success Workshops throughout the year designed to assist students in gaining knowledge, tips, and skills to help further their academic success.

Tutoring – Housed in the BASC is Campbellsville University’s tutoring program, which makes every effort to provide tutoring for any class students may need assistance, including assistance with writing. Peer tutors are students who have previously completed the course with a “B” or better. Also, at posted hours, professional tutors will be available to provide help on a walk-in basis. To fill out a tutoring request, or to apply to serve as a tutor, visit the BASC Tutoring Forms link on TigerNet under Academics.

Study Area and Study Rooms - A large open area is available in the BASC for students to use for individual study as well as space for group study sessions. In addition to the open study area, there are three private study rooms. The study rooms are available on a walk-in basis and these rooms can also be reserved in advance. The study area and study rooms are available Saturday-Thursday from 8:00 a.m.-Midnight and Friday from 8:00-5:00.

Computer Lab and Laptop Computers - A computer lab is available in the BASC including free printing services. The computer lab is open the same hours as the study area and study rooms. Additionally, there are laptop computers that can be checked-out and used anywhere within the BASC.
