Academic Support and Tutoring

Academic Support

The Scholar Enrichment Program (SEP) provides a number of programs to support undergraduates in science and math.  Here are a few particular programs to be aware of:

  • SEP Workshops are available for many first-year and second-year math courses (e.g., Pre-Calculus, Calculus I, Calculus II, Calculus III, Linear Algebra Engineering Math, PDEs). You register for a workshop in addition to the course, and attend the workshops weekly to gain extra practice on the material in your course. Junior and Senior math students can apply to be paid facilitators for the workshops.

  • The Summer Scholars Academy (by invitation only) offers an intensive 9-week program that is designed for students who have an outstanding high school academic record and are interested in majors in the College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.

  • The Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (L-SAMP) provides numerous methods of support for minority undergraduates in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields.

For more information about SEP, please contact the Program Manager, Eduardo CernaOnline Help Materials, maintained by Dr. Jeff Morgan, provide assistance for both traditional and online mathematics courses.


The following are sources of free tutoring provided by UH.

Additional Resources

  • Undergraduate Math Student Mailing List: The Math Department frequently sends out important announcements to all undergraduate math students through Tai McAlister, the department's Communications Manager. If you are not receiving these emails, contact Ms. Tai McAlister and ask to be put on the math student mailing list.

  • M.U.S.L. (Mathematics Undergraduate Student Lounge) 11 Fleming (Suite): This is located in the basement of Fleming, where you can study, work with a group, or relax with friends. M.U.S.L. is shared with a supported graduate student office, as well as three additional faculty offices. So please be cordial and keep in mind that this is also a working space. There are two white boards (one for each lounge room: 11A and 11B) for your use and plenty of seating. The lounge currently accommodates 15 students (max capacity). M.U.S.L. is open to all Undergraduate Math Majors at the University of Houston.  If you have questions regarding the availability of the lounge, please contact Ms. Tai McAlister. Rules for M.U.S.L. are available.
