You’ve Got This

Your dreams, your goals—worth it. Your NGU courses may challenge you. Your dreams should, too. You must step up. Study harder, smarter. Write a clearer thesis statement. Ace organic chemistry.

We’ve got your back. From tutors to guides and mentors. A word of encouragement. A map to your new territory. The secret study sauce everyone else seems to know already. You are not alone.

Student Accessibility

We work with you to facilitate accessibility in undergraduate or graduate courses taken on-campus or online. We will empower, support, and advocate while encouraging you to self-advocate. Ready to help. Always.


Write with clarity and power. Solve complicated math problems, learn chemistry equations, and prepare to ace your exams. The Center for Student Success (CSS) offers free peer tutoring services designed to encourage and equip students to be successful in their courses.


Academic Progress

It happens. College or life doesn’t go as planned. If your GPA falls below minimum standards (see the handy chart below), you may find yourself on academic probation.

We are still with you. The Center for Student Success offers counsel, guidance, and a special course designed to help you get your university progress back on track.

Defining Good Academic Standing

The minimum goes up as you gain experience at NGU. (Think of the Good Academic Standing requirement as the academic version of financial aid’s Satisfactory Academic Standing.)

Cumulative Hours Attempted


0 to 29 hours 1.5
30 to 59 hours 1.75
60+ hours 2.0

And Then What?

If your GPA falls short two consecutive semesters, we ask you to take a break from school. When you come back, we’re still here for you. Tutors, study skills, advice. Prayer, too. For questions regarding the Academic Standing services, contact Alicia Hyatt via email at css@ngu.edu or via phone at 864.663.0165.
