Additional Resources

While the PLUS program provides academic support services to over a thousand students per quarter, we cannot provide an in-person study group or tutor for every course or student. We always recommend using your instructor as a primary resource. Talk to them before or after class, send them a Canvas message, and check their office hours on the course syllabus. If you cannot attend office hours, try scheduling an appointment with them via email/Canvas message, phone, or after class. The list below provides additional resources on campus and online that can help students succeed in their coursework:
