American Language and Culture Institute

The American Language and Culture Institute (ALCI) offers extensive English as a Second Language (ESL) courses and cultural programs to international students, enabling them to acquire the necessary skills to function and compete within the American university environment. Students who have not obtained the required English proficiency scores may complete ALCI's program to enter their undergraduate or graduate program at APU.

The Center for Research in Science

The Center for Research in Science (CRIS), located in the Segerstrom Science Center, serves a community of students, scholars, and laypersons by promoting research that encompasses and extends the scope of scientific studies to address the inseparable relationship between science and culture, its role in classical liberal arts education, and the dialogue between faith and reason.

The Math Center

The Math Center (Segerstrom Science Center, 170) provides additional opportunities for APU students who need assistance at all levels of mathematics. Student tutors (mostly APU mathematics majors) are on site for walk-in tutoring from 2–8 p.m., Monday through Thursday, throughout each semester. Physics tutoring is also provided by APU physics majors. The staff encourages learning mathematics by doing mathematics. The Math Center provides an excellent environment for math learners to develop and practice their math skills.
