Learn About Our Services


Tutoring at UCM is available for most UCM courses—free. We almost always have someone here to help with mathematics, from Introductory Algebra to Calculus II.  

The Tutoring Center is certified Level 1 by the College Reading & Learning Association (CRLA), which means it adheres to the highest standards. We provide options for students at any UCM campus.

Are we missing a course you need or does the scheduled time not work for you? Let us know

Test Prep Center

The Test Prep Center provides electronic and print resources to help students prepare for the General Education Assessment (GEA). Whether you need general suggestions about preparing for the GEA for the first time or need additional practice before a retake, the Test Prep Center can provide support. Students will learn what to expect, practice sample questions and effectively prepare for their exam. 

Need to complete required tutorials to retake the GEA? Complete directions for the Blackboard course can be found in the Test Prep Center.

Supplemental Instruction

Supplemental Instruction (SI) offers weekly study groups for difficult courses. SI study groups are led by SI Leaders, trained students who have already passed the difficult course. SI Leaders attend class and work with faculty to make the SI sessions specific to the faculty member’s teaching style and the students taking the class that semester.

How does SI work?

SI is offered two to three times a week at a set time. Check the class schedule or your instructor for specific days and times.

Why should I participate in SI?

SI provides you with:

  • review and discussion of course material, including readings, lecture notes, and homework assignments;
  • learning activities, such as practice quizzes, games, and group activities, to help increase and deepen understanding of course material;
  • an opportunity to connect with other students in a structured but relaxed environment.

Writing Center

Need help with a paper for class? Not sure where to begin? Start by coming into the UCM Writing Center. It’s free and available to all UCM students at any stage of the writing process. Walk in visits are always welcome, but appointments are encouraged--especially near midterms and finals.  

 If you live off campus or your schedule doesn’t allow you to visit the Writing Center during center hours, try our Online Writing Lab (OWL). OWL allows you to submit your paper at any time and receieve feedback within 48 hours. Learn more.
