At the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, you have all the tools you need to succeed as an online student. To improve your GPA or to get an academic leg up, UL Lafayette offers free online tutoring and writing support for students enrolled in online and hybrid courses.
Undergraduate Online Students
NetTutor offers support for nearly every online or hybrid course, with some tutors available 24/7. If 24/7 support is not available, students have the option to “drop a question,” or view the tutor schedule to see when a live tutor will be available.
Tutors are also available to review any type of writing, including lab reports, technical writing, and business reports.
Log into your Moodle dashboard. Under courses, you’ll find a course labeled for tutoring.
Inside the course, you’ll find a link to access NetTutor, as well as helpful how-to videos and best practices.
Graduate Online Students
With more than 10,000 tutors in 300-plus subjects, TutorMe allows graduate students to connect with someone in under 20 seconds to get support when they need it, where they need it 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
TutorMe was selected specifically for its ability to provide high quality graduate-level support.
UL Lafayette provides up to 6 hours of personalized tutoring services per week.
Log into your Moodle dashboard. Under courses, you’ll find a course labeled for “Writing & Tutoring.” It’s critical students access TutorMe through Moodle for free access.
Online Writing Lab
For writing support, both undergraduate and graduate students in fully online programs can benefit from UL Lafayette’s Writing Center resources through the Online Writing Lab, or OWL.
Online students are automatically enrolled in the “UL Writing Center OWL” course.
Students: If you do not see the course in your Moodle dashboard, contact the IT Service Desk.
Within the course is information on what to expect from University tutors, what will and won’t be addressed in your work, instructions on submitting work for review, and a number of grammar and writing guides to improve your writing.
