Tutoring Services

Peer tutors are available to help students in most academic courses. Tutors have successfully completed the tutor course, received faculty approval, and received tutor training. There is no charge to students for tutoring services. Students may apply for tutors, at any time during the semester, at the Learning Commons in Stewart Memorial Library. Tutor appointments may be scheduled during the day, in the evenings and on weekends.

Academic Achievement Program

The Academic Achievement Program is an educational assistance program established at Coe College in 1978 to promote academic excellence, personal development and retention of college students who are traditionally under-represented in post-secondary education because of family educational background, income, or disability.

This federally funded grant program provides advising, career planning, scholarship resources, financial literacy education, study skills and time management help and much more to eligible students.

Selection of participants is based on academic merit. A student must be a U.S. citizen or registered permanent resident. In addition, a student must be:

  • Limited financially (according to federal guidelines); and/or
  • First-generation college student (neither parent has received a Bachelor's degree); and/or
  • Documented as having a disability.
