Student-athletes at Purdue University are offered tutoring services through the athletics academic support services unit. The tutorial program is designed to act as a supplement to classwork and individual study. It is not designed to take the place of in-class learning and development. Academic support services staff train qualified tutors. All sessions must be held in academic support areas within the athletic department facilities.

Student-athletes have the opportunity to meet with mentors. In the program, the student-athlete is paired with an individual who has been selected by the academics staff as a role model and academic leader. The mentor works with the student-athlete to manage their academic course load coupled with their sport requirements and the demands of a normal college student.
To request a mentor contact your sport advisor.
