How can I get a tutor for one (or more) of my classes?

  • Talk to your professor! They should be more than willing to help you succeed in the course and can connect you with one of the tutors available for the course that semester. You can then schedule a time to meet with them and make a plan to ensure you get the help you need and fully understand what you're learning.

Class Deans:

The Office of the Academic Deans provides academic guidance and support for all students and will help you develop and evaluate your educational plan. They will provide you with accurate information about policies, procedures, resources, and programs. If you need help to determine your degree requirements, to change majors or academic advisors, or even to discuss registration issues, you can schedule an appointment by calling 413-538-3610.

During the fall and spring semesters, class deans are available for 5-10 minute drop-in appointments. The drop-in schedule is posted at the beginning of each semester and students do not need to schedule an appointment. For quick conversations or urgent matters, come to our office during a drop-in hour.

First-Year Class Dean: Kim Parent

Sophomore and Junior Class Dean: Alison Hopkins

Senior Class Dean: Amy Rodgers

Career Development Center (CDC):

The Career Development Center, also known as the CDC, helps students explore interests, refine their paths, chart a course for the future, and gain the practical experience needed to succeed.
