Academic Development of Student-Athletes


The purpose of the Tutor Program in the ADSA is to provide student-athletes with subject-specific tutors who serve as a supplement to the classroom experience. The main goal of our tutors is to help student-athletes better understand specific course content. All sessions are one-on-one appointments available in a majority of courses taught on campus. Tutoring sessions are held throughout the day, Monday– Friday, barring practice schedules. The majority of our tutors are graduate students, adjunct professors, and outside professionals with 8-10 years of experience in the related field of study.

Tutoring is based on student need. Hours are flexible, but not guaranteed.
