Student Resources

NC State and the College of Natural Resources offer a number of services and resources to help students succeed. From study spaces and printing services to advising and degree planning, we are here to help.

Student Services

Tutoring Services

The College of Natural Resources is invested in helping our students achieve academic success, so we offer free tutoring services for courses offered in our college (FOR, NR, FW, SMT, ET, PRT, PSE, GIS, etc.). Tutors are carefully chosen to ensure that they mastered the content of courses that they choose to tutor. If you are interested in becoming a tutor, please fill out this CNR Tutor Interest Form.

Individual Tutoring

If you would like to request a tutor, please do so here by clicking Request A Tutor and you should hear back within 3-4 business days. Note that, depending on the course, it may take time to identify and train a tutor, so please do not wait until the last minute (like right before a test) to request one. Also, although the tutoring program is intended for courses offered by CNR faculty, if you request a course offered outside of CNR, we will do our best to find a suitable tutor.

CNR Virtual Tutoring Center

The Academic Affairs Office in the College of Natural Resources is providing a Free Virtual tutoring service. This will give CNR students easy access to a tutor that can assist them in a select group of courses. You must be in a CNR major to be eligible for this service.

For the Spring 2021 semester, we have hired tutors in our drop-in center to assist with these courses:

  • Math (MA 111, 131,141, 241, 242)
  • Chemistry (CH 101, 102, 112, 113, 114, 115, 201, 202, 205, 221, 222)
  • Physics (PY 131, 205)
  • Statistics (ST 311)
  • Agricultural & Resources Economics (ARE 201)
  • GIS 280
  • We have coverage for these courses as well (COM 110, BIO 181, 183, FOR 260, 252, 414)

Programs include an academic peer mentoring program for students who want regular support with time management and study skills, drop-in tutoring, group and one-on-one tutoring, writing appointments, and supplemental instruction.
