Academic Assistance Services

Academic effectiveness is a major concern of many students. The following services are offered by the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning to help students in the College improve academic performance.

Course-Specific Support. Students can participate in weekly student-led workshops and study groups to improve their learning in specific courses and to become more confident when taking exams.

Study Skills. Individual consulting and group workshops address concerns about preparing for exams, reading effectively, taking notes, managing time, and enhancing concentration. In concert with the Office of Minority Student Affairs, CETL also provides a study skills course in both the fall and spring semesters; this course is available to all students.

Tutoring. Individual and small group tutoring is available for a variety of subjects through the College Tutoring Program in CETL.

Disabilities. CETL serves students with disabilities by coordinating classroom accommodations and by offering transition support and self-advocacy skill development. Students interested in these services are encouraged to request a meeting with a disability access coordinator.

Students seeking more information or wishing to make appointments may do so in person, by phone, or by email. The main office of the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning is located in 1-154 Dewey Hall, (585) 275-9049. Our email address is, and our website can be found at
