UT offers many options for students seeking tutoring resources. Many offices, such as the SSC and Multicultural Student Life, offer free tutoring by appointment, drop-in, or for test reviews. Many departments and colleges also offer tutoring and academic assistance. Some examples include the Writing Center, the Math Tutorial Center, and the Chemistry Tutorial Center. Most tutorial offerings are at no cost to the student. Check with each department for tutoring schedules and appointment options. This site will help direct you to resources both at the Student Success Center and around campus. If you cannot find tutoring for your course, contact Brandon Jones.
