Tutoring Questions

*NOTE:  The Learning Commons will be relocating to the Community Room temporarily (Room W 0650) and will be renamed the "Tutoring Center".  The "Tutoring Center" will be in the Community Room from May 15th, 2019 - December 2019, while the New Learning Commons space is under construction.  All tutoring currently received in the Learning Commons will resume in the Community Room.  However, due to the relocation, computer and copy services will not be available.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  Computer access will still be available at the Library and Student Project Center, while copy services will still be provided at the Student Life Desk.
