Rutgers provides academic support services to help students succeed in their courses, progress academically, and develop the skills and strategies necessary for success.

Most students come to a point in their academics when they decide that working with other students or professional staff will benefit them. Whether you are finding a particular class more challenging than you anticipated or you just prefer to study with other people, tutoring or study group services may benefit you.

There are a variety of services available on campus and online, such as one-on-one tutoring appointments, drop-in group tutoring, writing assistance, and weekly study groups. To find services that would best fit your needs and learning preferences, use the search tool below or browse the list of resources to identify which are available to you.

Services provided by the University are free of charge. Some may be restricted to specific student groups. See the information listed after each service to determine whether or not it is applicable to you.

Tutoring & Study Groups
Learning Centers

The Learning Centers (LCs) offer drop-in group tutoring and weekly study groups. Study groups require registration. Both services offer face-to-face and online options and are available for free to RU students.

Writing Centers
School of Arts & Sciences

Online tutoring is available on a rolling basis to any undergraduate student enrolled in a Writing Program class. Our primary goal is to provide engaged tutoring that will move students towards independent reading, writing, and thinking. Students work closely with the same tutor for one 80-minute session per week for up to ten weeks. After the first five weeks, a student is eligible for 1.5 E credits (P/F), and may then choose to continue or cancel their remaining appointments. Tutoring begins on Monday, September 21 and ends on Friday, December 4. We offer morning, afternoon, and evening sessions to ensure easy access for all university students. We do not offer walk-in tutoring at this time.
