Student Resources


Institute for Learning and Teaching (TILT)

TILT facilitates tutoring in a cohort-based setting for students enrolled in select courses. Students can choose to participate in twice-a-week group tutoring sessions with the same 12-15 students. These sessions reinforce active learning and help equip students to manage their weekly coursework more effectively. For students unable or unwilling to commit to group tutoring sessions, TILT tutors also hold virtual office hours each week. All CSU students are encouraged to take advantage of TILT’s virtual office hours.

The CSU Writing Center facilitates campus-based conversations about the importance and process of writing in different contexts and media.
