Academic Support

You are here

As you make the transition from high school to college, you may find the expectations are greater and that the study strategies you used in high school no longer guarantee your academic success. Engineering students can find academic support through the following programs (also see Tips for Academic Success). 

Engineering Ambassadors - Engineering Ambassadors are students in their sophomore, junior or senior year who offer a variety of direct services — peer advising, help with choosing a major, training in study skills, and career services, engineering center tours — as well as referrals to other campus services. Engineering Ambassadors receive paraprofessional training from a variety of campus resources. First-year students can learn more about this program on the Engineering Ambassadors page.

Student Success Center - Drop-in tutoring is provided free of charge to all undergraduate students in the college.  Students in need of one-on-one or small group tutoring for Calculus I, II, III, Differential Equations, Physics, General Chemistry for Engineers (CHEN 1211) and a variety of other courses should visit the Student Success Center website.

  • Fall 2016 Schedule: Free tutoring for lower and most upper-division engineering courses is offered in the BOLD Center (ECEE 100), Aden Hall Tutoring Lab (ADEN 102), and in Williams Villiage North (Room 166B, near the lobby).  For complete hours, please visit the Student Success Center website, or stop by the BOLD Center.
