Center for Academic Success and Achievement (CASE)

Worcester and Manchester Campuses

CASE Services for Manchester and Worcester

CASE-WOR/MAN recognizes the demand and commitment required of students matriculating into professional, accelerated graduate, and post-baccalaureate programs on the Manchester and Worcester campuses. It is our priority to assist students in their academic success and with their adjustment to rigorous course loads by offering a variety of support tools, tutoring, advising, success coaching, and academic counseling. CASE academic support staff work with currently enrolled students to enhance learning, provide vital support, and minimize stress.

Being that the W/M CASE department services students in accelerated graduate and post-baccalaureate programs, we do not approach academic advisement in the traditional sense. These programs are lockstep, therefore the courses required for graduation purposes are pre-determined for each academic department, and the CASE staff do not have the authorization to make any changes to these programs. CASE academic counselors on the Worcester and Manchester campuses approach advising with a holistic coaching lens, helping to guide students through their academic journeys.
