Academic Support Services

University-level coursework can often be challenging, and most students need assistance at some point in their studies. The Center for Student Engagement provides a variety of opportunities for students who want to strengthen their academic performance overall or in one specific course. The following academic support services are offered—free of charge—to undergraduate students.

Virtual Supplemental Instruction and One-on-one Tutoring

The Center for Student Engagement will continue to provide high quality academic support services. Now that we have transitioned fully to an online course delivery model, academic support services including Supplemental Instruction and Tutoring will be accessed using the Microsoft Teams application for virtual supplemental instruction and one-on-one tutoring sessions. To learn more about how virtual One-on-One Tutoring and Supplemental Instruction works, click on the One-on-One Tutoring and/or Supplemental Instruction links below. NOTE: All access to virtual tutoring and correspondence of session will be done through your NPU account.
