The Learning Commons offers free tutoring to all currently enrolled UW-Milwaukee at Washington County students. Our goal is to enhance student learning outside of the classroom setting. Tutors are available for writing, math, and other content areas based on student need. Tutors are hired because they have an interest in helping others and have been recommended by faculty as a good candidate. All tutors must go through a mandatory training session and maintain their own academic success.
Academic advising is a very important part of your college experience. Advisors are available to assist you in developing educational plans that are compatible with your life goals. The ultimate responsibility for making decisions about your educational plans rests directly with you, but your academic advisor is here to help!
Academic Integrity & Misconduct
Academic integrity is an expectation of each UW-Milwaukee student. Our campus community members are responsible for fostering and upholding an environment in which student learning is fair, just and honest. Through your studies as a UW-Milwaukee student, it is essential to exhibit the highest level of personal honesty and respect for the intellectual property of others. Academic misconduct is unacceptable. It compromises and disrespects the integrity of our university and those who study here. To maintain academic integrity, a student must only claim work which is the authentic work solely of their own, providing correct citations and credit to others as needed. Cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, unauthorized collaboration and/or helping others commit these acts are examples of academic misconduct, which can result in disciplinary action. Failure to understand what constitutes academic misconduct does not exempt responsibility from engaging in it.
