Undocumented students face a unique set of academic, social, and emotional challenges. Undocumented students at Duke University are encouraged to take advantage of the full range of services provided by the Academic Resource Center, Academic Advising Center, Bass Connections, DukeEngage, Duke Immerse, and Duke Innovation and Entrepreneurship.
Academic Resource Center
The Academic Resource Center (ARC) offers a variety of services including Learning Consultations, Peer Tutoring and Study Groups, and ADHD/LD Support. ARC services are free to all students during their undergraduate careers at Duke.
Our Learning Consultants provide one-on-one consultations during the academic year and summer sessions. With attention to time management and learning approaches, we work with each student to discover and develop their own academic strategy for success at Duke.
Peer tutoring is available in several courses in chemistry, computer science, economics, engineering, math, physics, and languages. Individual and walk-in tutoring is available as well as study groups for certain math and biology courses.
Students can access resources such as ADHD coaching and tailored learning strategies as well as screenings for ADHD/LD.
Students in any year, studying any discipline, and at any point in the semester can benefit from using ARC services.
Academic Advising Center
The advisors and Directors of Academic Engagement at the Academic Advising Center (AAC) are all aware of the concerns of undocumented students and available to work with them to sort out any academic concerns they may have. Whether it is choosing the major that best fulfills your academic interests or discussing any other enriching co-curricular activities, we are here to help you to find the path that serves you best.
