What is ARC?
The Academic Resource Center (ARC) is the one-stop-shop for student’s advising, learning, and career planning needs. From freshman to senior, the ARC offers CBT students a personalized experience each step of the way. The ARC provides a number of services focusing on Advising, Retention (student success), and Career placement.
The ARC offers CBT students a personalized level of advising with one of our advisors specializing in each major. ARC advisors assist each student with creating a degree plan matched to their specific career goals. The process is continuous throughout the student’s education within the CBT, and is based on frequent personal contacts from an ARC advisor.

We provide students with the tools to thrive in the college environment, staring with the freshman experience. All CBT freshmen participate in a Student Learning Community class (SLC), taught by a CBT academic advisor. This class focuses on study techniques, approaches to test taking, and time management skills to help ensure our students have a successful first year. Freshmen are also assigned an upperclassman peer mentor and a faculty mentor within their program to provide guidance and support throughout their first year of college.
