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. Please feel free to reach out to the CNR Academic Affairs Office if you have any questions or concerns.

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.

The University Tutorial Center also has assistance for writing and speaking (which is open to undergraduate and graduate students) both by appointment and as a drop-in service:

Tutoring for Courses Outside of CNR

We also encourage you to check out other tutoring opportunities, especially for introductory courses in chemistry, physics, and math; please refer to the following links on the University Tutorial Center website:
