Academic Assistance & Student Labs

How can we help you?

Academic Tutoring and Assistance

For academic assistance, use the following to guide you.

STEP 1:

You should always start with your professor.  Your professor is the most qualified expert in the course material.  All faculty members are able to assist you in your course.  Check your course syllabus for contact information and office hours. 

STEP 2:

The Department of Computing Sciences offers tutoring for most major courses. Tutoring labs are open for drop-in assistance during the major fall and spring semesters (except student holidays). 

STEP 3:  

The department offers the Flexible Faculty Assistance Initiative.  This program, supported by full-time faculty, is designed to assist students in online courses where their professors do not have a local office on campus.  Courses include CSCI 101, CSCI 110, CSCI 120, CSCI 130, and CSCI 270. 

 

Labs and Study Spaces

Study Space

The Study Space is located in AOC2 215.  In addition to tutoring, this room offers a quiet study space, Windows computers, printing services, and interactive whiteboard. The whiteboard is Bluetooth compatible and is great to group collaboration. The tables can be reconfigured for study groups.  

Maker Space

The Maker Space is located in AOC2 241. In addition to tutoring, this room offers an exploratory space where students can use a Linux computer, a Bluetooth-enabled interactive whiteboard, 3D-printer, RFID kit, Raspberry Pi, Oculus Rift, and more. All students are welcome to explore. Not sure how to use some of the technology? Ask a tutor.

All computing majors and minors have a Department of Computing Sciences full-time faculty member who serves as an academic advisor. Faculty advisors provide advice related to degree requirements and career guidance.
