Academic Support Center
The Louisville Seminary Academic Support Center (ASC) assists students, faculty and staff with the various aspects of academic writing, critical analysis, study skills, and reading. We can also assist with professional papers, resumes, and reports. Throughout the semester, ASC conducts workshops on organization, documentation styles, plagiarism, senior Statements of Faith, SIEs, CPE applications, and other topics.

The Center works with students whose first language is not English. 

The Center is the campus office of contact for students needing academic accommodations for physical or learning differences. Contact the ASC Director, Beth Herrinton-Hodge, to discuss accommodations needs.
