Academic Excellence Center (AEC)

The Academic Excellence Center (AEC) is an educational space within the College of Engineering providing drop-in (no scheduling required) one-on-one and group tutoring by an experienced upper-division student tutor. The service is open to all students and is free of charge. We offer tutoring across a variety of course levels in the subjects of mathematics, chemistry, physics, computer science, and engineering mechanics.

The Academic Excellence Center is officially open for business! Watch this space as we add even more tutors and course availability in the coming weeks!

The AEC is located in 323 Sackett Building, and the hours of operation during the academic year are Sunday, 2:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and Monday through Thursday, 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. The AEC offers both in-person and virtual (via Zoom) hours. You can view tutors, the courses for which they tutor, and their hours of availability below once operational. To access AEC services, drop-in to 323 Sackett during in-person hours for the tutor/classes you need assistance with or log-in to the appropriate Zoom room during a tutor's virtual hours. No appointment, scheduling, or emails beforehand required!
