EOE Tutoring Program

The EOE Tutoring Program provides academic support to undergraduate students in the Cockrell School through free, one-on-one tutoring sessions for basic sequence and upper-division engineering courses. Engineering students are eligible for two hours of free tutoring per week. EOE tutors are upper-division and graduate students who received a grade of B or better in the tutored course. Before requesting help from the EOE Tutoring Program, students must seek assistance from Cockrell School and campus-wide resources:

  2. Departmental Tutoring offered in select classes required in the degree plans.
  3. Honor Society students are eager to help and their services are free.
  4. The Sanger Learning and Career Center in JES A309A provides drop in tutoring for many lower-division classes, and, for a small fee, one-on-one appointment tutoring.
