Learning and Advising Center

Haggar Hall

The Learning & Advising Center is the primary resource for students at all levels who wish to get the most from their academic experience at Philadelphia University. We are a “one-stop shop,” offering free tutoring in all Philadelphia University courses.  A staff of professional tutors is available for select subject areas, such as Writing, Math, and Academic Skills, while trained peer tutors are available for all content areas.  We also provide academic advising for first year and transfer students. Advisors are full-time faculty representing all the schools and majors at the University.

We are located in Haggar Hall, across the parking lot from Downs.
