All LRC and OURS services will be virtual for the Spring 2021 semester.

At UMass Amherst, there are a variety of academic support services available to students. The services are run by the Learning Resource Center (LRC) – the academic and research support department.

LRC and OURS Services:

  • Services are a built-in resource, and they are completely free to UMass Amherst undergraduates.
  • There are 3 distinct types of academic support available to ensure that students are academically successful in their courses: One on One Peer Tutoring, Study Skills Tutoring, and Group Learning (SI).
  • Academic support services are for all UMass Amherst undergraduate students, at every point in their undergraduate careers.
  • LRC’s cohort of Peer Tutors, Supplemental Instruction (SI) Leaders, are exceptional students who are highly trained to assist their peers in achieving academic success.
  • Undergraduate Research - For students who wish to engage in research, the Office of Undergraduate Research and Studies (OURS) helps students find and obtain research opportunities on and off campus.

The entire staff of the LRC and OURS welcomes you to UMass Amherst and encourages you to take advantage of our services.
