Royer Center for Academic Development


The Royer Center provides a variety of help services and instruction in strategies for success at McPherson College.  We offer subject tutors in our Tutoring Program, writing tutors in The Writing Center, and instruction in study skills and reading skills, through two courses, ID100 College Learning Skills and ID106 College Reading Skills. 

We also welcome walk-ins who are seeking help with a variety of college success skills (time management, note-taking, test-taking, stress management, etc.). 

The Royer Center also provides Academic Disability Services for students with documented learning disabilities or other disabilities, temporary or permanent, that substantially affect a student’s learning process.  If you need assistance with this, please contact Carole Barr, by email or by phone, ext. 2507 or direct dial 620-242-0507.


Our writing tutors, working regular hours and by appointment, provide a tutoring service for any students, faculty, or staff who want assistance with a writing project.  Tutors are trained to help at any stage of the writing process, with writers of any skill level.  We provide the service free of charge.

The Writing Center is open this semester from 6pm-10pm on Sunday and 7pm-10pm Monday through Thursday.
