The Learning Center

The Learning Center provides free tutoring and other academic support programs to undergraduate and graduate students to promote academic success and wellbeing.

Mission: To increase student academic confidence and success through collaborative, student-centered academic support programs. Our programs and services allow students to focus on their development as learners in a setting that values student agency and promotes critical, reflective thinking. Our goal is to equip students with the skills to independently and accurately take in, think about, organize, and apply knowledge. From our pedagogy, best practices, training, and development, to our diverse program offerings and partnerships across campus, we provide quality academic support for all SUNY Cortland students.

Vision: We are committed to supporting student learners as they deepen critical and reflective thinking skills in a safe, inclusive environment, providing the space to explore their academic interests and become thoughtful, contributing members of the campus, and local and global communities.

Inclement Weather Policy

When the campus cancels classes due to inclement weather, The Learning Center and its programs (Professional Tutoring, Supplemental Instruction (SI), Peer-Led Team Learning (PLTL), and Peer Tutoring) will also be cancelled. SUNY Cortland announces these cancellations on the campus homepage and via email. Generally, our online tutoring service will continue to operate during inclement weather. For questions about online tutoring, please e-mail Amy Russell.

Professional tutors, who are learning specialists, coordinate and supervise all peer-led programs.
SUNY Cortland students can access free Read&Write software to support reading and writing skills.
