Tutoring & Testing


Tutoring Services at Kent State Ashtabula provides free tutoring for current Kent State students in most subjects taught by Ashtabula Campus faculty. As of April 1, 2024, tutoring will be coordinated through the new KSU Navigate platform (see details below).

Peer tutors assist students with:

  • homework assignments
  • help clarifying lecture and classroom material 
  • reviewing for exams
  • help preparing for and practicing class presentations

The Academic Success Center also proctors exams as a courtesy to faculty and students. We offer proctoring services for make-up exams, online classes, and student accessibility services. Students must contact the Center at least 48 hours in advance to schedule an appointment for a proctored exam. You must provide a photo ID to take a proctored exam.
