Tutoring is available for most 100 and 200 level courses, as well as some upper-level courses and writing. Most tutoring takes place in the Student Success Center in Cressman Library.

Tutoring for the Fall 2017 semester opens September 5th.

Walk-In Tutoring

Walk-In Tutoring is available in the Student Success Center in Cressman Library for ACC, BUA, ECO, BIO, CHE, MAT, PSY, and SWK courses. Appointments are not necessary for walk-in tutoring; students may visit the Student Success Center whenever tutors are scheduled. 

Daily temporary schedule updates (e.g., when a tutor is out sick) will be posted to the Cedar Crest App Student Feed, and to the whiteboard in the tutoring area of the Student Success Center. 

If you need assistance with a course that is not listed on the walk-in schedules, please fill out a Tutor Request form.
