Center for Academic Success Nationally Certified

Tuesday, June 9, 2009


Whittier College's Center for Academic Success (CAS) has received national certification by the College of Reading and Learning Association's (CRLA) International Tutoring Program Certification (ITPC). The ITPC ensures that CAS's tutor training program provides the highest quality teaching and preparation for peer tutors and allows CAS to issue CRLA certificates to individual tutors who meet various levels of certification requirements. 

"Our future plans include advancing our program certification to Level 2 and 3, which will continue to enhance the quality of our tutoring training program as well as enhance the quality of our tutoring services," said CAS Director Kristina Alvarado-Gonzalez.

CAS programs include individual academic guidance, peer tutoring, supplemental instruction, a peer academic coaching program, and an academic success workshop series.
