The Center for Academic Success provides tutoring support to Alfred University students in a wide variety of disciplines. Tutors are typically undergraduate or graduate students who have been recommended by faculty members and who have done well in the target course or discipline.
Learning Labs have regular hours each week, during which students can stop by to work through difficult course material, study for exams, and get assistance with homework. One-four tutors are available during scheduled hours to help with a variety of courses in the target discipline.
