Academic Support Services

HMCSE is committed to providing academic support systems which are devoted to student retention, graduation, and professional success in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics programs (STEM).  Academic support programs provide additional resources for STEM majors both in and out of the classroom.

The academic rigor of STEM programs dictates the necessity for resources that provide practical and application-based learning opportunities as well as faculty mentoring for students. In collaboration with HMCSE faculty, the following academic support services are designed to encourage success and are provided at no cost to students.


Workshops are designed for students to solve problems using techniques learned during lecture courses. Under the leadership of faculty, workshops are led by student facilitators every week to reinforce classroom knowledge.  Workshops are optional although most faculty offer incentives for attendance. 

Workshops are currently offered for:

  • PHY 2048 Physics with Calculus I
  • PHY 2053 Physics with Algebra I
  • and MAC 2233 Business Calculus


Tutoring services are provided in a variety of subjects and locations on campus.  Tutoring is available in general education courses as well as many of the STEM programs. For additional STEM tutoring support as well as General Education tutoring services offered by Tutoring & Learning Resources, please visit the Tutoring & Learning Resources page.

  • CHM 1032 Fundamentals of Chemistry
  • CHM 2045 General Chemistry I
  • CHM 2046 General Chemistry II
  • CHM 2210, Organic Chemistry I
  • CHM 2211 Organic Chemistry II

Chem Scholars tutoring is available at various times Monday through Thursday throughout the Fall and Spring semesters. Tutoring is held in Building 58 in the Chemistry Library (Room 128). Students can drop in for tutoring specific to their chemistry course(s), with no appointment necessary. We offer tutoring services for General Chemistry 1 & 2, Organic Chemistry 1 & 2, and Analytical Chemistry. 

Spring 2024 Tutoring Schedule

Tutoring is offered as a free service to any student. Tutors hold regular hours and are often available by appointment. Because our tutors are students themselves, they are able to understand the unique challenges that students in Computer Science face.

CS Tutoring Schedule - Spring 2024

The Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering and Mechanical Engineering offer tutoring for students at both campus locations. Tutoring is provided by advanced Engineering students who have taken the courses themselves and are comfortable in the subjects to assist others. 

To see what courses are available for tutoring, please view the  Tutoring Courses Available list.

The Department of Mathematics and Statistics provides free workshops and individual tutoring for UWF students in several mathematics courses in the Tutoring Lab located in Building 4, Room 321. 

Our lab is staffed by advanced undergraduate and graduate students who provide tutoring and workshops in-service course and lower-division courses. Students seeking help in upper-division mathematics or statistics courses, but unable to find a tutor should visit their instructor during their posted office hours.

Tutoring is offered for:

  • Calculus I, II and III
  • Calculus with Business Applications

Professional Development Academy

Professional preparation is key to career training and development. The Professional Development Academy strives to provide educational experiences for students to be successful in the STEM world. To ensure STEM majors are trained and qualified to enter the workforce, students need access to workforce readiness programs and resources that provide real-world experiences.  In an effort to create these experiences, HMCSE has collaborated with Career Services and academic departments.
