Academic Support Programs

An educational home for all students

Academic Support Programs creates transformative educational experiences to help undergraduates thrive academically at the University of Washington. Committed to a diverse and inclusive university, we develop varied models of support to help all our students succeed. These models include a multidisciplinary study center (The Center for Learning and Undergraduate Enrichment, or CLUE), challenging and supportive academic achievement courses, tutoring and mentorship programs, and intentional collaboration with campus partners.

The Center for Learning and Undergraduate Enrichment (CLUE)

CLUE is the UW's free, late-night, multidisciplinary study center located in Mary Gates Hall. We offer drop-in tutoring, discussion sessions led by graduate and senior undergraduate students, as well as a writing center.

This weekly seminar introduces juniors and seniors to tutoring, mentoring, and teaching methodologies. Students apply what they learn in class through tutoring and mentoring new transfer, freshman, and sophomore students who are transitioning socially, culturally, and academically to the UW.

Academic Support Programs provides an educational home where all students feel included, challenged and supported — so they can realize their potential in and beyond the University of Washington.


We believe in the potential of all students at the University of Washington and that deep educational support, which includes compassion, commitment, equity and patience, can help students realize this potential.
