Resources & Services for Online Student Services

Refer to the links below to find information on different services offered to students. Additional services can be found on the university's Students page.




Steen Library's Distance Education page explains how to connect to the Ralph W. Steen Library, find and get a book, article, newspaper, or government document.


Through the library's online catalog, you can access the public holdings of both the SFA Library and the Nacogdoches Public Library. You can also directly search numerous general and subject-specific computer-based indexes, and can, in many cases, view the text of the information. Librarians are available to help with your research in specific subject areas and with any specific needs you may have.

Tutoring and remedial services are available through SFA's Academic Assistance Resource Center (AARC).

On-line students can submit papers from all disciplines for “virtual tutoring” via the OWL (on-line writing lab).  Details for submission as well as an overview of other tutoring services at the AARC (Academic Assistance and Resource Center) are at Help Me!
