Monday through Friday when classes are in session. Tutors are available for a variety of 100 and 200-level courses in core subject areas.

Tutoring is available in-person in the Academic Support Center, FR154Q. To see find a tutor in your subject area, follow the tutoring schedule link (you must be logged in to myMSUM) to view the schedule.
You can see course offerings and tutor availability next to the course for which you’d like tutoring. Tutors are available in in FR 154Q for the times listed; you are welcome to stay for just a few minutes, or the entire time our tutors are available. That is the convenience of drop-in tutoring. If drop-in times are not listed, don't work for your schedule, or you'd prefer to meet with a tutor in a small group setting, most subjects are also available by a one-time or recurring appointment request.
While most academic subjects are available via drop-in tutoring, we do have a few subjects that are set up by request only. If drop-in tutoring times do not work for you, you'd prefer a small group meeting, or the subject is noted as available by request only, follow the link in the schedule to submit a request for tutoring. You will have the ability to request sessions either in-person in the Academic Support Center, or virtually via Zoom. All session requests are subject to tutor and course availability and cannot be guaranteed.
Once your session is scheduled, you’ll receive an email from Tutor@mnstate.edu noting the day and time of your session, including the location (FR154-room will vary), or a link to the Tutor Zoom Room (if you prefer to meet your tutor virtually). You should receive a response and scheduled session within three business days of submitting your request. Sessions will be scheduled based on your availability and the availability of the tutor. If you have not received an email with your scheduled session confirmation within four business days from when you submitted the request form, please contact the Academic Success Center and we will check on the progress of your request.
If you cannot attend a scheduled session, please let us know at Tutor@mnstate.edu, and let your tutor know. You will receive their contact information with your scheduled session confirmation.
We offer a variety of in person, drop-in tutoring for 100 and 200-level courses in core subject areas.

With drop-in, there is no commitment! You can drop-in to see a tutor once a week, multiple times a week, or to prepare for an upcoming assignment, quiz, or exam.
