Academic Support

The University of Rochester has a variety of offices, centers, and resources available to support your studies as a Summer Sessions student.

Advisors are available for both walk-in and scheduled appointments.

Online learning resources

The Learning During Times of Disruption website includes multiple resources that address and troubleshoot the logistics of learning online. Additionally, the Learning Center has also created the Study Skills Guide to Mastering Remote Learning which contains useful information for students at all levels in and many disciplines.

Writing and speaking support

You can access resources and support through the Writing and Speaking Center including:

  • Writing and speaking tutoring

We encourage you to email to get added to the student database, which will allow you to use the center's online appointment system.
