Although all courses for the semester have moved into the digital platform, student resources and learning support are still available. The Learning Center, Writing Center, and Math SPA are accessible to all university students, and as always these services are provided at no cost.

Learning Center

Any accommodations provided through the learning center are still available on the digital platform.  If you receive additional time or other accommodations for assignments, be sure to contact your instructors to ensure those accommodations are set up in Canvas.  To schedule tutoring through the Learning Center, please email Lisa Christopher at or schedule a tutoring appointment on the Learning Center’s tutoring web page.

Assistance with editing papers and other writing assignments is available online or by phone.  To set up an appointment, visit the Writing Center’s online submission page to submit your paper.  Please allow at least 48 hours for your assignment to be reviewed, so schedule appointments as early as possible to ensure timely feedback.  This service is available to both undergraduate and graduate students.
