Tutoring is available free of charge to all students, full and part-time, undergraduate and graduate, who are currently enrolled at SUNY New Paltz. In order to receive tutoring in a content area, the student must be currently enrolled in the course. Writing tutors may be assigned to assist students in all courses.
A U.S. Department of Education Student Support Services (SSS) grant funds the Tutoring Center. As such, participants must have a need for academic support. They must be U.S. citizens, eligible non-citizens and enrolled in SUNY New Paltz courses. Students receiving support services must also meet one or more of the following criteria:
- First generation college student, i.e., neither parent has a four year degree.
- Fall within income limits set by the Department of Education
- Physically or learning disabled
Students who do not meet SSS requirements receive tutoring through funding provided by the College.
