Writing Center
We are open Monday through Friday (with the exception of holidays and academic breaks). You can schedule an in-person or Zoom appointment with a writing tutor for one hour, or you can see a tutor today for a 30-minute drop-in session. Visit the Writing Center in SSC 340 or call 530-898-6839.
Subject Tutors
SLC has tutors for certain courses. This is free to you as a Chico State Student. Check out the courses they have tutors for.
Supplemental Instructors
Supplemental Instruction (SI) is an academic assistance program that utilizes peer-assisted study sessions to increase student success in historically difficult courses. SI sessions are held 3 to 4 times per week by an SI leader who has already mastered the course material in a specific course.
