Center for Academic Excellence

Support for Academic Success

Develop skills and academic strategies to become a confident, independent and active learner, both in and out of the classroom. The Center for Academic Excellence will provide you with the tools and skills that will make you successful at Franklin Pierce. Connect with professors, learning specialists, administrative assistants, and certified peer tutors that will guide you every step of the way.

Please note that although you may be deemed eligible for academic accommodations as an undergraduate and/or graduate student during your time as student at Franklin Pierce University, the University has no control over the eligibility requirements of third-party test administrators.

For example, undergraduate students seeking to take the GRE, MCAT, LSAT, or other graduate school entry exams, may be eligible for academic accommodations for exams created and administered by Franklin Pierce University, but not necessarily eligible for accommodations for these other exams.

The same can be said of graduate and professional students. While perhaps eligible for exams created and administered by Franklin Pierce University, they may not be eligible for certification and licensure exams.

Students pursuing courses of study which may lead to the taking of such exams should consult with their academic advisor and determine whether or not such an exam is likely to be necessary. If so, the student should then consult with the Center for Academic Excellence and create a plan so that accommodations are available during the exam.

Students must submit exam administration requests one week before the exam. Every effort is made to accommodate late requests. However, requests submitted with less than one week's notice cannot be guaranteed to be available.

Submissions from this form are monitored, only, Monday through Friday, from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM (excluding holidays). Requests submitted outside of those days and times are subject to delay, as they may not be reviewed until the next business day.
