Additional Help

Math Study Hall, Tutoring, and Other Resources

If you are having any difficulties, seek help immediately - do not wait until it is too late to recover from falling behind or failing to understand a concept. Ask an instructor or TA either in class, during office hours, or during an appointment. Email your instructor or TA, or use the WebWork “email WeBWorK TA” button. Work with your classmates (this is always a good idea). It is essential not to fall behind because each lecture is based on previous work.

Disability Resources

If you have an academic need related to a disability, contact the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning (CETL).

The University of Rochester is committed to providing equal educational opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Costs of required auxiliary services are to be borne by the university, not by the student. For more complete information about disabilities, please read the disability handbook which is available on the CETL page.

To be granted alternate testing accommodations, you (the student) must fill out forms with CETL at least seven days before each and every exam. These forms are not sent “automatically.” Professors are not responsible for requesting alternative testing accommodations at CETL, and they are not obligated to make any accommodations on their own.
