Center for Academic Achievement

CFAA Logo

Located on the first floor of the Sherrod Library, the Center for Academic Achievement (CFAA) is the home of Tutoring, Testing, and the Office of Assessment and Teaching.

The CFAA is the place for students to go for help with:

  • writing and speaking
  • mathematics
  • natural sciences
  • general education courses
  • and many other subjects

The Center offers tutoring on a walk-in and appointment basis and is open during library hours, including evenings and weekends. In addition to scheduling an appointment with a CFAA tutor, students can work on homework in the Center and attend "drop-in" sessions in many subject areas.

The CFAA also supports faculty in classroom, curricular and programmatic evaluation and offers tools and assistance in improving classroom teaching and student learning.

In addition, the CFAA proctors online exams for ETSU courses and some national tests. Instructors can create their tests in D2L and then arrange with the Testing staff for their tests to be administered in the Center for students to take at any time during open hours.The Senior Exit Exam is now also available on a walk-in basis at any time during Testing hours.

CFAA staff members are happy to help students get answers to non-academic, college-related questions. 

An Einstein's Bagels shop and a student lounge are located directly adjacent to the Center.
