Support Services

Our goal is to help students meet their goals and succeed inside and outside of the classroom. Students come to Bryn Athyn with different academic skill sets and needs and we offer a range of options to help them.

Academic Advising

We have created an excellent advising program for all of our students. Every student is connected to a full-time faculty member who will be their academic advisor. This faculty member helps them in shaping and pursuing a course of study. Advisors assist with registration, course selection, and understanding College requirements. All students meet with advisors regularly and should watch for emails from them. Meeting with your advisor is part of our program here at Bryn Athyn.

ACE Program – opens for the term on September 4th

There will be no hours on Friday, October 20th, due to Charter Day celebrations. Regular hours will resume on Sunday, October 22nd.

Research Support—Walk in session

Library staff are available whenever the Library is open to help students with accessing the College’s electronic resources and search engines. Students can ask for help with research as needed at the front desk. The Library also has a Research Librarian, Ms. Andi Sibley, to answer questions and give a tutorial.

Peer tutoring

Peer tutoring is available for students in need of academic support. Through the program, students benefit from one-on-one coaching, while students who excel academically can get first-hand tutoring experience by helping their peers. Students can ask for support in any course they are having trouble with, and the peer tutor will help them by going over reading materials, helping them study for tests, or going over their notes with them. Students who find that the regular ACE support is not enough should contact Mrs. Ann Buss, ACE Coordinator, at 215-510-0069. She can arrange one-on-one peer tutoring and she encourages students to ask for support early on in the term if they feel they need it.
