The Academic Assistance and Resource Center is an award-winning program that provides free peer tutoring for many entry-level courses. We are Lumberjack students helping other Lumberjack students stay strong and reach their full potential. The AARC transforms the way students learn through online resources, walk-in tables, 1:1 appointments, and supplemental instruction groups led by students who have successfully completed the course. We make it easy for you to get the help you need!
