Academic Support Services for Off-Campus Students

Wheelock's Office of Academic Assistance, in the Division of Student Success, uses a developmental philosophy and holistic approach to help all students reach their educational, professional, and personal goals. Students are assisted in identifying and reaching these goals through assessment, determining appropriate steps, and utilizing the following resources.

Wheelock@Worcester Program Resources

The Wheelock College Library
Wheelock@Worcester students have access to a vast array of online resources from the Wheelock College Library, including e-books, streaming video, and full-text journals. Library staff are available to answer questions by phone, email, or chat, and librarians are also available for one-on-one consultations over phone or Skype to help you with specific research needs.  Visit the Wheelock@Worcester library guide to get started, or find out more about library services for Distance Learners.
