Student-athletes at Purdue University are offered tutoring services through the Athletics Academic Support Services unit. Group tutoring, individual tutors and on-site, evening walk-in tutors are offered. 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.
Student-athletes also 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 assist them in managing their academic course load coupled with their sport requirements and the general demands of being a college student.
