Learning Commons

Welcome to the Learning Commons

Tutoring Center | Writing Center | Supplemental Instruction | Testing Office

The Learning Commons provides free academic support to all enrolled Stanislaus State students. Our goal is to create an open atmosphere of learning, with the purpose of encouraging dialogue among students in order to share techniques for academic success. We offer individual and group tutoring across most disciplines, writing tutoring for both undergraduate and graduate-level writing, and provide supplement instruction sessions for select courses.

All services are currently being held remotely until October 1, 2021 when select in-person service options will become available. View service start dates below. 

We are also open for in-person services including:

  • Answering student questions
  • Individual in-person meetings by appointment
  • Attending online services in our office by appointment

Hours of Operation:
In-person hours and services: 8-5 p.m.
