We are always taking applications in all subjects we tutor (see current schedule for subject list).  You may download the application below and submit the completed application with unofficial transcripts to the Learning Center front desk.

All other subjects are fully staffed at this time. However, interested students who would like to tutor other areas may still download and submit an application at any time.  The Learning Center will hold applications for one year from the date of submission. Should an appropriate position become available, the strongest candidates will be contacted for interviews.  You must be a currently enrolled PSU student with a minimum of 6 undergraduate or 5 graduate credit hours to be employed at the Learning Center.

Several criteria exist to qualify for a tutoring position, including the recommendation of a faculty member from the discipline you wish to tutor, a minimum GPA of 3.25 and a desire to work with students in a cooperative, friendly manner. Please read the entire application form carefully. Preference will be given to students who are recommended by PSU faculty in their department and/or have previous tutoring or teaching experience. You do not need to qualify for work study to work as a tutor in the Learning Center.
