Center for Learning Assistance
The Center for Learning Assistance provides learning enhancement services to help students achieve their academic goals.
The CLA is committed to creating a positive student experience at Bradley University and provides equal access to an educational experience through the provision of academic accommodations. After submitting documentation, a student, with the Director, will create an accommodation contract and work on developing self-advocacy skills for requesting the approved accommodations. The CLA also facilitates a peer tutoring program. Bradley undergraduate students qualify for two hours of free one-on-one peer tutoring per week. Free drop-in tutoring is provided for select math courses. Tutoring is partially funded through the generosity of the Bradley University Parents’ Association and Bradley Varsity Club.
- AEP 115: Learning Enhancement Strategies Seminar
The Learning Enhancement Seminar (AEP 115) is for students who want to ensure they have mastery of the learning and study skills that are required to be successful in college courses. Topics in this seminar include: time management, textbook reading, note taking, classroom etiquette, test taking strategies, motivation, and goal setting.
Turning Point Retention Program
At Bradley, students whose difficulty have resulted in academic probation are required to participate in the Turning Point Program (TPP). The Turning Point Program’s mission is to assist first-time probation students as they work to regain good academic standing. Program participants complete a self-assessment, meet with TPP staff, and create and accomplish a plan for the semester that may include: the Learning Enhancement Strategies Seminar (AEP 115); weekly accountability meetings, or connections to other campus resources.
