Academic Support Resources

A professor stands before a lecture-style classroom, lecturing to a large group of seated university students.

Adjusting to a new campus or a new academic culture can be challenging. 

We encourage you to use the many academic support resources available for you here on campus. You can find subject-specific tutoring or join up with a study group. 

Almost all resources offered through UW-Madison are free for students.
