Tutoring is not an accommodation at the post-secondary level. The law, IDEA, which governs disability services and access at the secondary level, can entitle students to such supports. The ADA/ADA Amendments Act, which governs disability services and access at the university level considers tutoring a personal service and is therefore not an accommodation or academic adjustment.  The ADA is intended to ensure equal access but is not a guarantee of success for students. As such, the university strives to ensure that students have equal access to courses, programs, services and activities, including tutoring services available to students.


Free tutoring is available to all students at UNC Asheville. Students may receive tutoring through our drop-in tutorial centers or on an individual basis. We offer drop-in tutoring in several subjects including Accounting, Chemistry, Classics (Hebrew, Greek & Latin), Computer Science, Foreign/Second Languages, New Media, Physics, Psychology as well as other subjects. The Math Lab (new window) is also available for any needed tutoring in mathematical topics. If the subject you need tutoring for is not covered by a tutorial center, the university may provide a tutor to work with you on an individual basis for 100 and 200 level classes. A student with a demonstrated need may be able to receive more than the allotted amount of tutoring hours, if warranted.
