The Academic Resource Center at Cox College welcomes you.

The Academic Resource Center at Cox College provides support for students in academics and personal and social development. The Center aids students in developing transition-to-college foundations such as study strategies, note-taking tips, test taking proficiencies, time management skills, learning styles assessments, and relaxation techniques, as well as providing guidance in dealing with stress, anxiety, and personal concerns. All students are encouraged to use the support services available through the Center and students may suggest additional ideas or make comments via a suggestion box.

The Academic Resource Center’s goal is to encourage success strategies for college and for life. Workshops and seminars on textbook reading, all stages of writing research papers and reports, and APA style may be offered each semester. An introductory course, CCPL 100-Promoting Learning and Ultimate Success, provides incoming students with the opportunity to become familiar with the campus and to develop their learning skills.

The Academic Resource Center is located on the second floor terrace of the college.

PERRLA

This writing template program was developed for nursing students who need assistance with formatting papers in APA format with the theory that students should be allowed to concentrate on the content of their papers—not the format.  This software is available on two computers in the Academic Resource Center (ARC) and also on all of the computers in the 3rd floor computer lab.  A two-minute tutorial will get you started, but assistance is available in the ARC if needed.

Counseling

Cox College offers free supportive counseling services provided by a professional counselor to all current students. Students are encouraged to seek counseling help when they first experience signs of distress or other issues that they would like to discuss in a confidential setting. The counseling office is located in room 305 on the 3rd floor of the college.

The counselor is available by appointment through the ARC, and appointments can be scheduled by calling 417-269-3598 or 417-269-3225. When counselors are not available on campus, students are referred to community agencies and resources.

Off-campus community counseling and treatment services are available from the following resources.
