Macon Traditional Undergraduate Students

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) provides several different services designed specifically for Mercer's Macon traditional undergraduate students. We offer peer tutoring, Supplemental Instruction, college study skills courses (LSK 185/186), individual counseling, and workshops. Each of the services is designed to help Macon undergraduate students improve performance and accomplish their academic goals.
