Academic Support

Helping you get the most out of your college experience.

There’s a lot to think about in college, and you have your own strengths and challenges. We’re here to help with your individual needs through different services that make it easier to tackle classes, plan for your future, keep your mind and body healthy, and achieve your college and life goals.

Shea Library

The mission of James J. Shea Sr. Memorial Library is to assist the American International College community in their quest for knowledge by providing resources and services that support information literacy, encourage life-long learning and promote personal fulfillment.

Center for Navigating Educational Success Together (NEST)

Welcome to the NEST – AIC’s Center for Navigating Educational Success Together! As Yellow Jackets, each of you will build a network of support that will help you be successful. To assist you in building that success network, we have created the NEST. Much like Yellow Jackets build nests as their home base, we hope you’ll come to think of this as a part of your home and a one-stop shop that will support you as you progress through your time in college. Within the NEST, you’ll find the following:
