The Learning and Academic Resource Center (LARC) is located on the first floor of the University Library in the Jean and Charles Schulz Information Center.
LARC provides peer academic support through three programs: the Writing Center, the Tutorial Program, and the Supplemental Instruction Program.
We are now open for the Spring 2022 semester! Our center is open for inquiries and student use Monday through Thursday from 9:00am - 5:00pm, and Friday from 9:00am - 4:00pm. Tutoring will start February 7th, 2022. We will again be offering both in-person tutoring (Monday - Thursday, 10 am - 3 pm), and online tutoring through Zoom. Learning Community sessions will start the first or second week of the semester (please see your Course Canvas for details), and Supplemental Instruction will start the second or third week, so be on the lookout for your SI Leader introduction!
The Writing Center helps students, faculty, and staff with developing their writing skills and producing documents. Writing Center staff also assist faculty with improving their writing for instruction, supports WIC (Writing Intensive Course) curriculum, and promotes writing across the curriculum.
The Tutorial Program offers free peer tutoring in over 50 courses each semester and provides weekly drop-in math tutoring. Students can easily schedule tutoring appointments online for both the Tutorial Program and the Writing Center by clicking the link above and registering for an account.
The Supplemental Instruction Program (SI) is a peer-led academic assistance program that helps students succeed in specific course sections. Study sessions are led by trained SI Leaders who have mastered the course content. Students can voluntarily attend these SI sessions to increase their understanding of topics and materials from the courses, and improve their grade!
Looking for support? Check out our Spring 2022 Course Support List! SI/LC courses and sessions are listed on the second tab, and Computer Science Embedded Lab Tutoring is on the third tab. Please note that this list is still being updated and should be complete soon.
