    Drop-In Tutoring at the Academic Success & Tutoring Center 

    Overview: The ASTC provides drop-in tutoring for several high demand courses 

    What:  Drop-in tutoring for select courses (TBA)

    Fall 2022 Opening Date: Week of August 28th

    Where: ASTC (Stony Brook Union, Suite L-08)

    When: The schedule will be posted at the beginning of the semester.


    Who: Stony Brook University students enrolled in the specific undergraduate course for which they are requesting tutoring.

    Some things to consider:

    • With the drop-in format, students should expect that a tutor may be helping other students at the same time. If students have similar questions or are reviewing similar course concepts, the tutor may group students together.
    • At times, the students may be expected to work individually while the tutor meets with other students. The tutor will check in periodically throughout the session, as time and the number of students attending allows.
    • Tutors will assist students on a first-come/first-helped basis. During peak periods, students may need to wait for assistance. In addition, tutors may limit the length of time students can stay for drop-in in order to assist the maximum number of students possible.
