The Office of Campus Student Services (OCSS) offers tutoring services to all enrolled degree-seeking students within the Professional and Graduate programs on the Anschutz Medical Campus. The services our tutors provide will assist students with understand concepts and develop problem-solving skills specifically for “basic science” course content.
Tutoring for coursework, which is considered as ‘skills coursework’ or courses specific to a professional training program is managed by the college/school/program in which the student is enrolled.
In order for OCSS to provide financial support for a student's tutoring assistance, a faculty member(s) or Student Affairs personnel must refer a student. However, in certain cases, students are able to refer themselves. If a student does refer himself or herself, OCSS will consult with the program student affairs personnel.

Tutors are hired by the Office of Campus Student Services to help students who have been referred by their faculty/student affairs offices as having difficulty with course content. Depending on tutor availability, students seeking review assistance without referral may also use these resources on a pay-as-you-go basis.
