The College recognizes that most students can occasionally use a little help keeping their studies on track. For this reason, tutoring and mentoring services are provided from a number of groups on campus. Tutoring is also available through certain departments, such as Chemistry, Mathematics, and Physics (check with your department administrator to see if tutoring is available in your area of study).
If you’re in need of help or guidance in a particular class, your first step is to take advantage of instructor or teaching assistant office hours. You are also encouraged to bring any academic difficulties to the attention of your College adviser.
