Academic Advising: The Office of Academic Advising is a department within Wheelock's Division of Enrollment Management and Student Success. Meet our advisors and learn about Wheelock's unique academic advising model and see how we empower students to make decisions about their personal and professional goals while pursuing their undergraduate degree.
Bridge Program: The Wheelock College Bridge Program gives selected incoming first-year students a head start on building a foundation for success at college. Time management, critical reading, communication, study skills, and college-level independence are addressed through an intensive two-week summer session, a fall-semester Academic Success Course, and one-on-one weekly meetings with an Academic Skills Coach throughout the fall term.
Disability Support Services: Students with diagnosed learning or physical disabilities may be eligible to receive specialized services and accommodations under state and federal laws. These may include testing accommodations (extended time, separate location, etc.), use of assistive technology, priority course selection, or consultations with a Learning Specialist.
Earl Center for Learning and Innovation: Students use this innovative, hands-on workspace to explore, work, and play with materials and technologies designed to support the growth and development of children and their families.
Library: Library resources include books and journals (in both print and online formats), children's literature and magazines, videos and DVDs, audio visual equipment such as still and video cameras, educational and psychological assessments, music CDs. You can also get research help for your assignments any time the Library is open.

Study Lounge: Home to the Academic Assistance and Disability Services programs, the Study Lounge is located on Floor 2 of the library. It offers students a comfortable place to work alone or with a group. Students and faculty can access academic support materials and assistive technology.
