About the Center for Academic Excellence

"Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success." - Pablo Picasso

Mission Statement

The Center for Academic Excellence is South Alabama's tutoring and writing center. The CAE’s mission is to provide tutoring and other learning resources to help all USA students succeed in their coursework and achieve their goals. This mission is grounded in the belief that students can learn anything with hard work, perseverance, and good study habits.



The CAE offers writing consultations to help with essay assignments and other writing projects for any class in any discipline. We also provide subject-area tutoring for courses in math, sciences, and more. Tutoring sessions take place in-person and online.

Additionally, the CAE provides guided study sessions, academic workshops, mentoring, and other academic success programs.
