World Campus Tutoring

***There is no tutoring available for Summer 2024 courses. Please reach out to your instructor and attend office hours if you need support.***


Fall 2024 Tutoring for College of IST World Campus Courses:

  • Spring tutoring starts the week of September 1, 2024, and ends on December 14, 2024. The link to schedule tutoring appointments for fall will be published on this page during the first week of classes. 
  • We have tutors available online to help with most 100 and 200-level SP24 College of IST courses, plus some upper-level courses
  • Link to schedule an appointment will be added in the second week of fall classes. 

Need help with 100 or 200-level (some 300-level) College of IST courses? The IST World Campus Peer Tutoring Program is a centralized academic support resource for students in World Campus who are enrolled in College of Information Sciences and Technology programs at Penn State.

We provide scheduled, virtual one-on-one coaching to help World Campus undergraduate students practice and reinforce concepts in the College of IST curriculum. Tutors are trained to help you puzzle through the problems on which you are stuck, but you will do the work of learning and reap the benefits! The tutors’ job is NOT to re-teach course material. Rather, the tutoring team will aid students in their learning by helping to clarify unclear concepts and by supporting students as they practice skills and apply new understandings.

We kindly request that you allow us a minimum of 24 hours to confirm any appointments that are requested. Thank you!
