Student Support on Campus

Advising

The College Office serves as the home base for undergraduate students in the School of Arts and Sciences. Advisors in the College Office are available to help with general and special academic circumstances from Monday through Friday, by appointment from 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. and on a walk-in basis for quick questions from 12:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. The college office provides academic guidance to all College undergraduates and processes graduation applications and audit seniors for graduation. Any non-major graduation related question should be directed to the college office.

 

Academic Support

The Weingarten Learning Resource Center provides academic support services and programs for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students at the University of Pennsylvania through its two offices. The services and programs of both offices are free and confidential.

The Marks Family Writing Center provides individual writing guidance and feedback to students, and also presents writing workshops across campus, consults with faculty and assists them with designing and responding to writing assignments, and engages in community outreach.

Communication within the Curriculum (CWiC) Advisors teach workshops and provide coaching sessions for individual and group presentations.

The Tutoring Center offers Penn undergraduate students free, accessible, and convenient options to supplement their academic experience. Tutoring is available one-on-one and in groups, by appointment and walk-in. Please review the information below to determine your best option based on your schedule and the class in question.

 

Beyond the Classroom

Career Services helps students explore careers, internships and graduate education opportunities. 

Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS) offers confidential and free professional mental health services to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students at Penn. Our goal is to assist students in their adjustment to university life and help them take full advantage of the academic and social environment at Penn. Students learn to manage personal problems, situational crises, and academic stresses, as well as develop self-awareness, personal responsibility, and skills for life-long learning. CAPS offers clinical prevention, intervention, and consultation services as well as training and supervision with special attention on issues of diversity and multiculturalism.

Penn Wellness is a student run webpage providing information on wellness for students around campus.
