Academic assistance

Academic assistance is available for students in a variety of forms and locations.  Whether your student wants to bring a grade in a class from a B to an A or your student is having a difficult time with a subject, support is available and in many cases free of charge.

The Academic Assistance Center serves students in all majors regardless of where they live.  Students may request free tutoring, explore resources to help with the college transition, or sign up for academic programs like PILOTS, the University Experience course or basic math courses.

Students who wish to have support in developing their writing skills may consult the Writing Center.

Scholars Assisting Scholars is a free, walk-in tutoring program for students enrolled in specific science, math and engineering courses.

The Academic Resource Centers in the residence halls offer free tutoring, computer labs, study space, printing and copying.

Many departments offer tutoring for the courses they offer.  Your student should visit with the instructor of the course about help sessions, departmental tutoring offices, and walk-in tutoring.

Choosing a major

Students may desire to explore a new major or confirm their original choice of major.  The Academic and Career Information Center can assist students with exploring major and career options through career assessments, matching majors to possible careers, and researching majors, careers, and graduate schools.
