There are ways to find help and become successful in your coursework. If you need guidance, come visit a peer mentor in the MEP office.
MEP offers one-on-one and group tutoring services to get your academics back on track. These FREE tutoring services offer a chance for you to get the attention you need.
Students are encouraged to take full advantage of the TA office hours and the course tutor (if there's one) and Learning Support Services prior to seeking MEP tutorial assistance.
