Academic Support

CS-CIT Tutoring Program:

Students with excellent academic records, strong communicative skills, diligence/dedication and amiable disposition are selected every semester to be mentors/tutors. These tutors are usually juniors or seniors. They provide academic support in many Computer Science courses and subjects. Their experience, developed and well honed from completing the coursework, elucidates students both in one-on-one sessions and group study. Students may voluntarily visit the tutors for assistance or may be assigned to visit them by their course instructors.

Other Academic Support Programs:

Besides the departmental level tutoring service and faculty advisors to students, several institutional centers expand upon the classroom experience. Free tutoring and mentoring services are offered at two other levels: college and university.

At the college level, extensive tutoring facilities are available at the Science Enrichment Center (see SEC Resource Summary). With several specific requirements and electives in mathematics and sciences, our majors benefit directly from this second level of support. Well established mathematical foundations and the scientific method are essential in the development of every computer scientist or information technologist.

At the university level, the Academic Success Center provides tutoring services and develops effective study strategies and skills.
