Learning Support

Penn State Learning

In addition to the support offered by academic units, Penn State Learning provides access to free tutoring, study groups, and workshops. Don't wait until a course presents a challenge to take advantage of Penn State Learning. Their office believes "Successful students start studying for exams on the first day of class. Tutoring, study groups, and review sessions will be more effective if you visit every week."
