The Athletic Training Education Program (ATEP) at Sterling College is not even ten years old, but it already has a reputation, a good one.
Sterling College’s Academic Support Center is located in the center of campus, in the beautiful Mabee Library. Personnel in Academic Support are committed to helping students succeed academically. We offer peer tutoring services, disability services, and assistance for students wanting to improve their time management or study skills. We also refer students to the Writing Center on campus when they need assignment-specific or discipline-specific writing assistance.

The programs in this category are offered through a continuation of the Sterling Teacher Education Program (STEP), which has a history of excellent results for students taking assessments required by the state for teacher licensure.
