The EOP Tutoring Center offers tutoring in a variety of subjects and is open to all EOP students. General help with most writing assignments is also available.

Students are required to attend tutoring if they are first time freshmen in any remedial courses or if they are on academic probation and if they are registered for any of the courses listed below. If you are taking remedial courses and/or are on academic probation, you are also encouraged to request tutoring for your other courses as well. Please check your specific requirements for more information. Priority will be given to those students that have been mandated to attend EOP Tutoring.
