Welcome to Learning Assistance Programs!


 LAP offers all SeattleU students the following services:


Individual sessions are available for students who want to fine-tune their study approaches or to develop skills in a particular area. We conduct learning style assessments, recommend effective study skills, and coach students in applying proven academic strategies in their classes.

Learning Assistance Programs provide peer tutoring for several math, science, business, language and nursing courses.  Our program has received the highest level of national certification through the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA). We also offer drop-in tutoring with Subject Specialists and virtual study halls led by tutors. 

We offer interactive workshops on a variety of topics of interest to students, including sessions on time management, improving reading strategies, effective review, test-taking methods, self-care, and more.

Peer-led and coordinated with specific courses, in facilitated study groups students explore course concepts, practice problem solving, and learn study approaches in a collaborative setting. Language conversation groups are peer-led and focus on the practice of conversational speaking for various languages.
