The Learning Centers are here to help as students transition to fully online learning. We will continue to offer tutoring, academic coaching, writing support, study groups, and in-class support online, though some services will have reduced hours. The four Learning Center locations will be closed until further notice. Beginning on March 23, 2020, we will have a virtual help desk  to help students navigate their courses and connect with support services.

We have created a guide for successful online learning and ask you to share this with your students. In addition, we have developed an online training course for peer leaders (tutors, academic coaches, study group leaders, etc.) who will be providing services remotely. If you supervise peer leaders and would like them to complete this training module, please contact us at

Please visit for more information about how to access remote services and contact the Learning Center staff. We remain dedicated to supporting students’ success and appreciate your feedback in identifying their academic needs during this time. Please let us know how we can support you and your students.
