Welcome to the Office of Student Academic Success (OSAS)

The Office of Student Academic Success (OSAS), a unit of the University of Maine’s College Success Programs, provides tutoring for UMaine students who need academic assistance in 100 – 400 level courses during the Fall and Spring semesters as well as Winter Session and Summer University. Tutoring is available at no additional cost to students. OSAS uses a digital platform called Knack where students can access tutoring services. In addition, students who wish to become a tutor will use the Knack platform to create a profile for tutoring. 

  • OSAS recruits UMaine students to become tutors who work one-on-one or with small groups of students, in person on an as-needed basis or for regular tutoring sessions. 
  • Sessions are held (during the day or evening) in approved locations (Fogler Library) or reserved classrooms on campus.
  • Tutors will help students to learn how to conceptualize course material, sharpen their reasoning and questioning skills, and utilize available resources to become stronger learners.

The Office of Student Academic Success is excited to offer this free service to UMaine students!
