Referred Tutoring

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.

Non-Referred Tutoring

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. 


Contact the Office of Campus Student Services (Lia Nelson-James, Coordinator of Services and Programs) with any questions regarding this service at 303/724-7684 or  Campus Student Services
