Here are some offices across campus that are available with resources to help you succeed academically and professionally:
The Accessibility Resource Center supports students with access barriers, learning differences, and disabilities. Please visit their website to learn more about requesting accommodations.
The Tutoring Center provides services that facilitate TCNJ students’ learning and persistence as they meet academic challenges throughout their academic careers.
1) Commonly Tutored HSS Courses:
The Tutoring Center offers single or weekly recurring individual and group tutoring sessions in content and writing for courses across all seven Schools, depending on tutor availability and demand. Tutoring services are offered free for registered TCNJ students throughout the spring and fall semesters, except eTutoring, which is also available during winter and summer sessions.
Typically, tutoring is available for most entry level and some upper-level courses. If students do not see a course listed on our tutor scheduling platform, WCOnline, we recommend that they reach out directly to their professor and/or put the requested course on our waiting list on the Tutoring Services page of the Tutoring Center website. Alternatively, students may email the Tutoring Center with requests for tutoring not currently being offered.
2) How to Access Tutoring:

“CSS is the Center for Student Success. The Center was established to provide all students with access to personalized coaching and advisement with the goal of strengthening their academic performance and promoting student success and retention. The staff is dedicated to the academic success and development of the whole student.”
“Our center supports the College’s mission by fostering an environment that encourages students’ career development through academic, leadership and experiential education.”
The College publishes all policies in an on-line manual. If you have questions or concerns about interpreting a policy, reach out to your academic advisor or relevant office on campus.
Please be aware that the College has specific policies regarding course grade appeals:
“A student who wishes to file a written grade appeal must inform the department chair within a period of fifteen calendar days after meeting with the instructor of the course. In cases where the student was unable to establish contact with the professor, a written appeal must be filed with the department chair within thirty calendar days after the end of the semester in which
the grade was posted. For the purposes of grade appeals, “end of the semester” is defined as the last day that grades are due in a given term. This date can be found on the TCNJ academic calendar. In cases where grades are submitted after the official deadline, a student may file a grievance up to thirty days after the grade is posted.” The full policy can be found here: Grade Appeal.
