In accordance with UB’s Fall plan, TASS Tutoring and Academic Coaching appointments will only be offered online during the fall 2020 semester.
Tutoring and Academic Support Services (TASS) helps undergraduate students raise the bar on their classroom performance by providing resources that open doors to academic success. TASS sets a new standard for academic support at UB, where you’ll find that asking for help is one of the smartest things you can do.
When you work with one of our tutors, you’ll find new ways to approach your studies and gain strategies to overcome the rigors of college-level work. We offer services to meet these needs and more. These services are free to all undergraduate students.
Your health, safety and academic success are our highest priorities, and TASS is here for you! Continue to focus on your schoolwork and maintain a healthy schedule. For official university guidance and updates about UB’s preparedness and response to this issue, visit UB’s COVID-19 Information website.
Additional information and resources will also be shared on our Facebook page.
