Students are encouraged to take advantage of
the many resources available to them at Lindsey Wilson College. The

The CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) test is a series of
exams that allows students to demonstrate their knowledge in
various subjects. The CLEP test allows students to receive college
credit for what they know, no matter where it was learned. The cost
of each CLEP exam is $80. Pre-registration is necessary; forms are
available from the tutor coordinator. For more information on the
CLEP, visit CLEP Online.
Freshman academic advisers work closely with students throughout
their first year in college, helping guide them through course
selection and registration as well as provide information,
referrals and coordination with campus services. The freshman
academic adviser's primary duty is to teach freshman seminar, keep
close contact with first-year students and monitor class attendance
and student performance, from enrollment to the selection of a
major. Advisers also assess testing results, conduct surveys and
work closely with the Office of Career Services and faculty.
Peer tutoring is a process whereby students that are strong in a
particular subject tutor students that are having difficulty in
that subject. Tutoring requests typically last for one semester,
but "quick help" requests may also be made for one-time
appointments with a tutor. Students who study in groups often find
that they learn more quickly and easily than when they study alone.
Adding a tutor who has already succeeded in a class increases the
likelihood that group members will achieve a successful grade. For
more information on receiving tutoring or becoming a peer tutor,
contact the Tutor Coordinator, Maretta Garner.
All students within one year removed from high school must
