Students must successfully perform in courses beyond the core curriculum to affiliate with and graduate from their intended majors. Therefore, to enhance affiliation and graduation rates, CUES provides underrepresented minority (URM) and first generation college (FGC) students with access to tutors for the gateway courses to engineering majors and for major-level courses.
Request a Tutor
Eligible students can request a tutor for an upper-level engineering course by filling out a CUES tutor request form.
CUES Tutoring resources are funded by a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant that is allocated toward assisting specific populations. Due to these funding restrictions, students must meet the following requirements to be eligible to receive CUES Tutoring:
- Current undergraduate in Cornell Engineering
- Underrepresented minority (URM) or first generation college (FGC) student
- U.S. citizen or permanent resident
- ENGRD 2100- Intro. to Circuits
- ENGRD 2190- Mass of Energy Balance
- ENGRD 2210- Thermodynamics
- ENGRD 2300- Digital Logic & Comp. Organization
- ENGRD 2600- Principles of Biological Engineering
- Other courses as requested.
