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.

PEERS-Sponsored Review Sessions

The Engineering PEERS host review sessions for the Freshman engineering course: EGR 1200 before tests. They will also host review sessions in the Spring for Physics I.

Tutors

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, you can go to CEER 309 and fill out a tutor request form. We can get you a tutor for Calc I and II, Chemistry I and II, and Physic I. Contact Gayle Doyle with questions about tutoring.

Upper-class students should go to their respective department's honor society to find out more about receiving help in their specific area of study.
