Tutoring & Study Help

The Student Success and Academic Advising Center regularly employs peer tutors to help other University of Saint Francis students in specific courses. We make an effort to provide tutoring in general education courses in which students historically face challenges. If you need help with a subject for which the Center does not offer peer tutoring, check SmarThinking (within Blackboard) or contact the department through which the course is offered to see if supplemental tutoring is available.

The current semester tutoring schedule is posted below, as well as inside and outside the Student Success and Academic Advising Center, Pope John Paul II Room 210. Hours are subject to change.
