The Pathways Center is an initiative to provide comprehensive student support services including, but not limited to, peer tutoring, disability services, academic mentoring, academic planning, career development, vocational exploration, MUM referral system, study abroad, work study, and diversity and inclusion initiatives. Located in the Eberly Library, The Pathways Center works in partnership with the community and on-campus resources, including the Counseling Center, Student Services, Writing Center, Library Services, Center for Entrepreneurial Leadership, Alumni Relations, Athletics, academic programs and others.
Students who are on Academic Alert, Academic Warning, or Academic Probation are assigned to meet weekly with a faculty or staff member in an effort to improve their academic standing. Through the mentoring relationship, students are held personally accountable for their academic efforts and achievements while receiving critical guidance and support.
Students with disabilities who believe that they may need accommodations are encouraged to contact the Disability Services Office at 724-852-7797. Students are encouraged to contact the office as soon as possible to better ensure a timely review of their request.
The University provides free peer tutoring for most courses in the Knox Learning Center located on the ground floor level of the Eberly Library. The tutors are students who have had the course or who are currently enrolled in the course and have been recommended by the instructor. Tutoring sessions are scheduled to accommodate the schedules of both the tutors and the students being tutored.
Waynesburg University provides free Career Development for students and alumni, including resume and cover letter review, interview support, job and internship search assistance, vocation-based assessments, graduate and professional school search and application assistance, and more. In addition to support, the Career Development space within the Pathways Center offers resources, programming, and events, including on-campus and off-campus job and internship fairs.
Undergraduate students at Waynesburg University are able to study abroad for one academic year, one semester, or during short-term study abroad programs. Through partner programming, students have nearly 100 opportunities to choose from in 40 countries around the world. A limited number of students are selected annually to apply their institutional aid to one semester of their study abroad experience. Institutional aid cannot be applied to short-term programs. Domestic programs in Los Angeles, CA, Nashville, TN, and Washington, D.C. are also available to students. Students are encouraged to plan ahead and to complete an off-campus study application with the Registrar's Office.
