Tutoring Resources

General Education

The University is committed to academic resources to support student success. This site guides students to services available on campus, from our peer institutions, and other non-university websites. Students are always encouraged to seek out assistance early in the semester. In addition to utilizing these tutoring services and academic success resources, students should consult their academic department for more resources in their major courses. The Undergraduate Catalog provides contact information for your major department and a directory of all student resources and services.
