Helpful Resources
If you need academic support but cannot make it to the tutoring center, there are a number of online resources that can be of assistance to you. The Academic Support Center recommends the following:


COA Library
The COA library webpage provides a wealth of resources to help students with their writing and general research.


Smarthinking
Smarthinking is a tutoring assistance program available to COA curriculum students. The tutorial service gives students ten “credit” hours, per school year, of live around-the-clock tutoring assistance that is facilitated through online discussion boards or live chat with a tutor. Use the Quick Start guide for more information.


OWL Purdue
Through the Purdue Online Writing Lab, or OWL Purdue, students can access free style guides for their writing assignments. This website is especially helpful because it provides up to date MLA, APA, and Chicago style guides, as well as easy to follow examples for all potential sources.
