Tutoring help being offered in math

Students who struggle in math now have the opportunity to receive help. Grambling State University is offering a Quality Enhancement Plan (QEP) Mathematics Clinic on Mondays through Thursdays in Carver Hall Room 136. 


The clinic will continue through April 24.


The QEP Clinic helps students get help from mathematics faculty outside of class enrolled in College Algebra (Math 131), Trigonometry (Math 132), Pre-calculus I (Math 147), and Pre-calculus II (Math 148).  


According to recent data, students who take part in the Mathematics Clinic ultimately do better in multiple classes, not just math.
