Academic Support for Engineering

Academic support, offered through the College of Engineering to Engineering students, is listed below. On the right, you will find links to areas of support offered by the University.

After meeting with your course instructor, and academic advisor, if you are still struggling in a particular course you are encouraged to get assistance from a PEER during office hours, posted on the door. If you are still looking for additional help, submit a tutor request form. We can help you get a tutor for Calculus I and II, Chemistry I and II, and Physics I. Contact Gayle Doyle with questions about tutoring.
