Academic Resources

The Student Success Center Advising Team

As Midland University works to fulfill our mission of inspiring students to learn and lead in the world with purpose, we are committed to individual student success. Each student is assigned a Student Success Advisor that will work alongside the student. As a university, we recognize the essential role that the advisor plays in educating students to lay claim to their unique gifts and talents. Advisors are familiar with the requirements of all academic majors and opportunities. They have a special understanding of working with students as they declare or search for their major. Advisors assist students in understanding the role and purpose of a liberal arts education, as students build the foundations of their careers at Midland.

Advisors are well versed in the support services offered by the University, including the Student Affairs team, Academic Program Support, Counseling, Student Health, Campus Ministries, and other campus resources. The advisor and student will work as a team to seek out and use the best resources and strategies available to promote academic and personal success. This advising assistance gives Midland students the benefits of a carefully planned academic program and a holistic approach to personal development.

Advisors have access to the results of academic aptitude, reading skill and comprehension, English composition, and other achievement tests for use in helping their advisees plan their educational program. All advisors receive a grade report for each advisee. Advisors, at their discretion, may consult with the advisee’s instructors, campus resources, coaches, and arts directors to best support the student on their way to degree completion.

Advisors do their utmost to assist their advisees, but the ultimate responsibility for understanding and meeting academic policies and degree requirements rests with the student. Copies of the Midland University Academic Catalogs are located at for each incoming class.

The Student Success Center is located on the northeast end of the Olson Student Center and is open 8:00 am-4:30 pm Monday-Friday.

Luther Library

Luther Library provides book and non-book materials to support the curriculum and to encourage extracurricular interests. In addition to the physical collection of materials, the Library staff maintains access to an extensive collection of digital databases and online resources. The interlibrary loan service is another way to acquire materials not held in Midland’s collection. The Library hosts social and educational events and the Library staff is available for individual assistance to students and faculty. Policies, procedures, and basic information about the use of the facilities and materials may be found in the Student Handbook.

The Academic Resource Center (ARC)

The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is located in the northeast corner of Luther Library. The purpose of the ARC is to provide academic support through a variety of services. The ARC hires Learning Lab Consultants to help with multiple disciplines and offer exam review sessions for certain classes. In addition to the Learning Lab Consultants, the ARC offers Supplemental Instruction (SI) for traditionally challenging courses like accounting, anatomy & physiology, chemistry, and psychology. SI sessions are offered three times per week for each course. The Writing Lab Consultants support students with all stages of the writing process. They review written work and help students become more confident writers. The Quiz Lab offers a secure testing environment for faculty and students.

  • Learning Lab: Trained Learning Lab Consultants offer academic support for a variety of subjects through one-on-one or small group sessions. This assistance allows students to develop a deeper understanding of course concepts with the support of the consultant. The consultants will help explain course material, review homework assignments and serve as a role model on how to be successful in a particular course.

  • Quiz Lab: The Quiz Lab is a secure testing environment utilized by faculty and students. The Quiz Lab is a place for students to take their examinations outside of class, as instructed by their professor. It is important to note that the Quiz Lab proctors monitor students and assist with technical issues, but they are not there to help students complete the exam or quiz. All students must adhere to the Quiz Lab Academic Integrity Policy.

  • Supplemental Instruction (SI): Supplemental Instruction (SI) is a peer-facilitated academic support program that targets traditionally challenging courses and aims to improve student success. SI Leaders provide regularly scheduled, informal review sessions in which students compare notes, discuss readings, develop organizational tools, and predict test items. Students learn how to integrate course content and study skills while working together with their SI leader.

  • The Writing Lab: Writing Lab Consultants provide one-on-one writing support for all members of the Midland community. Consultants work with students on a wide range of writing skills including thesis sentences, content, organization, and citations. Writing Consultants strive to empower confident, independent writers, who edit their own work.

Accommodation for Students with Disabilities

The Student Accommodations Office is located in Olson Student Center. The Student Accommodations Specialist works directly with students who have a documented disability and are seeking accommodations. Midland University complies with state and federal legislation addressing student accommodations and is committed to providing reasonable accommodations for individuals with disabilities. Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and The Americans with Disabilities Amendment Act of 2008 (ADA) assure persons with disabilities equal opportunities for access in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. Midland University is committed to providing an accessible learning environment and willingly makes reasonable accommodations for individuals with documented disabilities.

Upon acceptance to Midland, students seeking accommodation are responsible for notifying the Student Accommodations Specialist. Appropriate written documentation of disability is required and any accommodation provided is based upon individual need and existing academic requirements. All accommodation must be consistent with established academic requirements and standards of Midland University, and a student with accommodation continues to be responsible for his/her education and personal needs.

Midland University supports each student’s efforts to become a self-sufficient learner and encourages any student needing accommodation to seek support as early as possible. For further guidelines on accommodations, please contact the Student Accommodations Specialist and review the Student Handbook.
