Academic Supports

One of the key ways to increase your chances of success in academics is to regularly communicate with your professors. We also offer a college success skills class to our provisionally accepted students.  A variety of other academic supports are available to you at Erskine College.

Supplemental instruction helps students with test preparation, note-taking skills, and appropriate academic study skills. This is an out of class review session for select courses that meets at least twice a week to cover class discussions and lectures. Research indicates that students who regularly attend SI earn higher course grades and test scores. Sessions are free of charge.


The Write Here Center at Erskine College exists to provide proofreading services for all college and seminary students. Students who understand how to express their thoughts and ideas through writing experience more academic success, earn better grades, and have improved opportunities to gain more insight from their courses. The skilled student readers in the Write Here Center can read your drafts for focus, purpose, organization, development, critical response, voice, diction, syntax, documentation, and mechanics. The Write Here Center is located on the first floor of the Watkins Student Center.


All provisionally accepted students are assigned a student mentor to help them take advantage of the various academic supports and resources available on campus.
