Campus Resources

MSU offers free tutoring, help rooms and academic support services to help you succeed in the classroom. Try these free resources before deciding to pay for tutoring. And remember, never pay another international student to tutor you as this is considered off-campus employment and is not allowed by immigration regulations unless the tutor has received CPT or OPT work authorization through OISS.

Tutoring Support in the Neighborhoods

Part of the Neighborhoods' mission is to provide access to the available resources on campus, to help students reach their full potential and have a successful college career. Each Neighborhood has a variety of resources accessible through the Engagement Centers including:

  • academic advising
  • math and writing center tutors
  • and more!

Tutoring Support in Your College or Academic Department

The following colleges and departments offer free tutoring:

Math Learning Center 

Our goal is to bring high-quality, friendly, free math help to MSU undergraduates. All you need to bring is your MSU ID!
Our main site is located in STEM Building room 2110, but there are also four satellite locations in MSU's neighborhoods so help is never far away! 
Get free help for most 100 and 200 level math classes, and even some upper-level courses. Our experienced tutors, trained by the Math Department, will answer your questions in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Most of our tutors actually instruct mathematics in MSU undergraduate courses.

MSU Resource Center for Persons with Disabilities

The RCPD is committed to lead Michigan State University in maximizing ability and opportunity for full participation by persons with disabilities including autism, blindness and visual impairment, deaf/hard of hearing, learning disabilities and attention deficit, mobility disabilities, psychiatric disabilities, and other types of disabilities. 

MSU Testing Office

The Testing Office aims to provide the highest quality testing environment for students, faculty, staff, and the community.

Writing Center

The Writing Center at MSU operates with a broad vision of collaboration in the MSU community; peer-to-peer consultations with students, faculty, and the community allow us to expand ideas of literacy and composing beyond traditional models and geographic boundaries.
