Support Courses for Credit

Tutoring is a great option when there’s just one class you're having trouble with. IU also offers a host of classes that help with all your courses and the undergraduate experience.

These courses vary in session length (6, 8, 13, or 16 weeks), occur every semester, and range between 1 and 3 credits. They are hosted by IUB's various schools and colleges and will count as electives towards your degree. And all will support your greater undergraduate goals. Sign up for one of these classes and have your academic experience transformed!
