Tutoring and Help

Advice and resources for getting help in mathematics courses

  • Office hours: for Professors and Teaching Assistants, see the course syllabus and/or course webpage for their office hours. To see a Professor and T.A. at other times, please contact the individual to make an appointment.

  • Private tutors: A list of private tutors is posted in the Main Department Office.

  • Academic Advisement holds Academic Success Workshops, as well as other valuable information for succeeding in college.
  • Missing an Exam: If you miss (or are about to miss) an exam, please speak to the Professor as soon as you can to determine the policy on missed exams, and (possibly) to reschedule the exam.

  • Incompletes: If you are unable to complete a course for a documented medical reason after successfully completing the first half, please request an incomplete ('I' grade) from the Professor.

  • Retaking courses: Undergraduates may retake any course once, for purposes of improving a grade. See repeat policy. The new grade will replace the old grade in GPA computations, however both the old grade and the new grade appear on the transcript.

  • Other Academic Issues: For other problems, you may wish to speak to your academic advisor, EOP counselor, SEAS advisor, Athletics coach/advisor, or to Patti Wieclaw in the Undergraduate Studies Office.
