Academic Support Center (ASC)


The Minot State Academic Support Center (ASC), located in the lower level of the Gordon B. Olson Library, is a one-stop location for services dedicated to student success.   

Students can schedule an appointment with ASC staff via Starfish, email, or phone. 

The mission of the Academic Support Center is to guide students in achieving success and reaching their academic goals by providing student-centered programming and academic assistance to the entire student body.

Services Include:

Academic Advising

The Academic Support Center provides advising services to undeclared, general studies, and pre-nursing students. The center also assists with general advising questions and prepares advising resources for the campus.

Access Services

Access Services promotes self-awareness, self-determination, and self-advocacy, while ensuring individuals with disabilities have the same access to programs, opportunities, and activities as all others. Students are assisted in making reasonable accommodations and/or adjustments to meet their individual needs.

Career Services

Career Services offers career guidance, cover letter and resume assistance, resources in career exploration, employment opportunities, mock interviews, and goal planning.

Peer Tutoring

Our peer tutoring program seeks to empower students in their pursuit of becoming independent learners. Tutors assist students with study tips, tools and resources to help them gain a better understanding of subject matter.

POWER TRiO Student Support Services

POWER is funded by a TRiO-Student Support Services grant from the U.S. DOE and helps Americans who are low-income, first-generation college students, or have a documented disability enter college, graduate, and move on to participate more fully in America’s economic and social life. POWER is here to strengthen and inspire students as they embark on their higher education journey.


Starfish is a communication tool which allows instructors to give praise or raise concerns regarding students’ academic performance. Students are encouraged to seek assistance from appropriate campus/community resources. An online scheduling feature is also available in Starfish.
