The school offers free academic tutoring for students who self-identify or who are identified by faculty members as in need of academic assistance. This service is provided for individuals who are struggling in the curriculum and performing poorly academically; it is not provided for students who wish to improve a passing grade to a higher passing grade. Both group and individual tutoring services are provided by current pharmacy students. Please contact Cecilia Romero in the Office of Student Services to get more information.
ESL Support and Assistance for Enrolled Students
The school has an ESL Instructor on faculty in order to assist first year students who passed the Summer Intensive Advanced English Course, as well as to assist any other student with an ESL/bilingual/multilingual background, whether self or faculty referred. This service is offered at no charge to current students. Typically the area of concern and focus is writing, but occasionally the need to practice speaking skills for a verbal exam or sharpen pronunciation skills also arises for some students. Having an ESL Instructor on staff reflects the school’s commitment to diverse students and assisting them in achieving success. Due to the ESL instructor’s familiarity with all written coursework for the Pharm.D. program, at times, native speaking students demonstrating the need to improve their writing are also referred and advised in the same manner as ESL/bilingual/multilingual students. Students are welcome to contact Mary Seeber for more information.
