Where underprepared students prepare, prepared students advance, and advanced students excel.

The MAX Center partners with faculty to empower students in their academic success. We employ peer tutors in math, science, writing, and study skills, and we would be happy to come visit your classroom to talk to your students about our services and programs.

Our professional staff is available to meet with students on an regular basis to harness the benefits of regular tutoring and coaching. We work with students on Honors Theses and Capstones, and we also help students study for the Graduate Record Exam.

At the right-hand side of this page are statements that you can include in your syllabus for relaying information about what our office can do for your students. There is also a link to Frequently Asked Questions that contains more information about the ways we partner with faculty.

Also included at the right-hand side of this page are the forms for students who need testing accommodations in our center. Students may receive documentation by contacting   or so that our office can arrange the recommended accommodations.
