Mission

The University Tutorial Center contributes to NC State students’ academic success by providing a variety of free programs and resources that promote academic skill development and independent learning within the university environment.

History

A small academic assistance program began in 1979 for veterans, which eventually expanded to offer services for all undergraduate students.  The UTC added the Supplemental Instruction (SI) program in 1987 to support the large demand for chemistry academic assistance.  The writing and speaking tutorial programs for all students began in 2001.  The UTC offices and programs are scheduled to move to the new Academic Success Center in DH Hill, Jr. Library in fall 2020.
