Student Resources

Academic Support

The Emory Writing Center has excellent resources available through the Writing Center. Center tutors take a discussion- and workshop-based approach and offer 45-minute individual conferences. Tutors can talk about purpose, organization, audience, design choices, or use of sources. They also can work on sentence-level concerns (including grammar and word choice), though they will not proofread. Instead, they will discuss strategies and resources that writers can use to become better editors of their own work. Several tutors are ELL Specialists, who have received additional training. Note that you need to make (and cancel) appointments at least 3 hours in advance to accommodate remote staff. Review the Center’s updated policies and procedures for online appointments before your visit.

Peer tutors work one-on-one with students to help them improve their understanding of course-specific content and develop effective learning strategies. Any student enrolled in an Emory College course that is supported by peer tutors is eligible for 2 hours of peer tutoring in a given 7-day period. 

Tutoring is offered in person and online. You will specify the mode you prefer when you make an appointment online. 

Learning Assistants offer weekly collaborative group learning sessions to explore concepts, review class notes, discuss reading assignments, practice test-taking strategies and review for quizzes and exams. Learning Assistants are undergraduates who have successfully completed the course they are supporting. Each Learning Assistant is supported by the associated faculty member.

The full learning assistant schedule and registration for sessions can be found on College Connect.

EPASS offers coaching appointments with staff as well as peer coaches. Coaches work collaboratively with students to identify next steps, and solutions, and build academic skills, or resource opportunities. Our staff coaches typically work with students who are referred from faculty or other departments and those who need acute ongoing intervention. Our student Academic Coaches are undergraduate peers who are trained to work with students on both an individual level and in larger workshop settings around various broad academic skills-related topics.

Topic areas that may be covered in individual sessions or workshops can include:

  • communicating with faculty and TAs
  • improving time management
  • academic study skills
  • goal setting and problem-solving
  • overcoming procrastination
  • academic stress/ test anxiety
  • referrals to a wide variety of campus resources

Financial Resources

The Emory First Gen Low Income Partnership (FLIP) resource handbook was established in 2016 and aims to create resources and a community for first-generation and/or low-income students, working with administrators and other student groups in order to bring events and services to advocate for institutional change. FLIP guides are available here.

Information for first-generation and low-income students can be found here.

The Office of Financial Aid provides information on financial support for students and lists financial aid officers by students’ last names. Please contact the office to inquire about assistance with purchasing textbooks, lab fees, and other class-required purchases.

The Student Hardship Fund consists of charitable donations provided by Emory University–affiliated people and entities, students, organizations, or persons who want to assist Emory students facing unexpected financial challenges.

This fund is not associated with the financial aid application process. Financial aid applicants who have special circumstances that relate directly to the financial aid process should contact their financial aid advisor.

In some cases, the Biology Department can provide financial assistance for students for teaching-related expenses such as textbooks, lab fees and other teaching materials. Please send an email to, in which you explain: (1) the need for financial assistance; (2) the resources needed; (3) a list price and web link for the required resources.
