In collaborative partnership with TMU faculty and staff, the Office of Disability Services (ODS), Academic Counseling, and ARC Tutoring are committed to equipping undergraduates with the resources and intentional mentorship needed for them to achieve their educational goals and honor Christ through academic excellence. Specifically, ODS serves students seeking academic accommodations based on a documented condition protected under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). Meanwhile, ARC Tutoring provides online, peer-to-peer, and group tutoring services for all current TMU undergraduates.

The goal of education is to prepare the whole person. At The Master’s University, we seek to instill in our students the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for their chosen profession, while cultivating their spiritual growth, strengthening their moral character, and developing their abilities as citizens and leaders. TMU is committed to helping each student succeed in their academic career and in the path God has for them after graduation. Through tutoring labs (ARC tutoring) and other student success resources, our ambition is that we will help you find your way to manage your academic life successfully.
