Academic Services at the BAC consists of Academic Advising and the Learning Resource Center. Through these offices students can receive academic advising, tutoring, and guidance in areas such as general life balance, time management, and effective study skills.
Academic Services is located on the 1st Floor of 320 Newbury Street near the student mailboxes.

Academic Advising
Academic Advisors are available to discuss course sequencing, educational plans, concerns about academics and practice, and to provide guidance through the Portfolio, Thesis, Degree Project, and Progress Review processes. All students are required to meet with an Academic Advisor at least once a year; however, we strongly encourage students to meet once a semester. Students who are on Academic Probation may be required to meet with their Academic Advisor on a more frequent basis.

Academic Advisors are available by appointment and during specific drop-in times throughout the year. Appointments can be made Monday through Thursday between the hours of 9:00am to 7:00pm. To schedule an appointment you can go in person to the office, call the general Academic Advising line at 617.585.0160, or email advising@the-bac.edu. Important: Appointments must be scheduled at least 3 days in advance and, if necessary, must be canceled 24 hours in advance.

Learning Resource Center
The BAC Learning Resource Center (LRC) provides a range of tutoring and writing consultation services to help students with their studies. All tutoring is free and is available via drop-in, by appointment, or both depending on the subject. Present services include, but are not limited to:

  • Writing and Research consultations (all classes, resumes, cover letters, and portfolios)
  • Tutoring for Math-intensive courses (Algebra, Trigonometry, Physics, and all levels of Structures)
  • Software tutoring (AutoCAD 2D and 3D, Revit, SketchUp, InDesign, Photoshop, and others)
  • Studio consultations (presentation skills, concept development, etc.)
  • Drawing tutoring (Freehand, Orthogonal, and Perspective)

To inquire about availability of tutoring for a course not mentioned, contact the LRC directly at 617.585.0174, learningcenter@the-bac.edu, or in person at the office.
