Everyone needs a little help now and then
Every student can excel with the right tools. In the College of Science and at OSU, students have access to a wide array of academic support resources as well as tutoring centers to assist their learning beyond the classroom. Our tutoring centers are a welcoming and friendly space where peer and faculty mentors will offer guidance and share study techniques to help you grasp course materials and improve your academic performance.
Studies show that students who make use of the tutoring center regularly gained more academically in terms of higher average GPAs, study skills and higher rates of persistence.
Select a tutoring center below to learn more about undergraduate learning resources and academic support for science, mathematics and statistics and how we can help. Or visit us in the Science Success Center in Kidder 109.
