The tutoring program, under the direction of the Tutor Coordinator, provides flexible and comprehensive content tutoring to all student-athletes. A supplement to class time and faculty assistance, tutoring is an opportunity for student-athletes to more fully master class content. Tutors are either undergraduate or graduate students who have been recommended by professors. The Tutor Coordinator assigns a specific tutor to each student-athlete who submits a request through his or her counselor. The vast number of tutors available allows student-athletes to schedule tutoring sessions with the assigned tutor at times that fit individual schedules. Tutoring sessions can take place at any time of day in an approved location. The tutoring program is not intended to take the place of attending class and working with professors; tutoring provides an opportunity for students to gain a more comprehensive understanding of course material.
If you would like to work with a tutor, contact your academic counselor. Once a tutor is assigned to you, you will receive an email from SATutors@nd.edu.
During the first semester of Freshman Year, all scholarship student-athletes will participate in a mandatory academic Transition Program. The central goal of this program is to help ensure that each student-athlete has a successful start to their collegiate career. By focusing on the importance of a consistent approach, ASSA hopes this experience will reinforce a set of habits (punctuality, organization, good time management and the capacity to focus) that will help each participant successfully balance the demands inherent to being a student-athlete at Notre Dame. While the environment is closely supervised by ASSA Academic Counselors, the outcome is designed to cultivate growth and ultimately, academic independence.
