The CLAS offers a handful of English language workshops each week.  With the exception of our pronunciation workshop, all English language workshops will be offered in person. Because it’s hard to work on pronunciation while wearing masks, our pronunciation workshop will be offered online.

You can see our full schedule of weekly English language workshops here [PDF].

Online tutoring closely approximates the in-person tutoring experience. With application and document sharing, mark-up capabilities, and a virtual white board, you and your tutor can do just about anything you would do in an in-person session.

Yes! Our amazing staff of peer and professional tutors will be offering both in-person and online appointments.

Congratulations on your decision to join our Suffolk, we are thrilled to have you! We like to tell incoming students to use the Undergraduate Academic Advising (UAAC) as a touchstone and first stop for all things academic. This summer, during orientation, you’ll have an opportunity to meet with an academic advisor to review your course registration and have any questions you may have answered.

During the fall semester, we will make visits to one of your first year courses to reintroduce ourselves, review the services we offer, and discuss registration for the spring semester. We are here to support all undergraduate students regardless of major, so please do not hesitate to reach out. We look forward to working with you throughout your time at Suffol!

For general inquiries and course registration questions, please contact the main office at 617-573-8034 to set up an appointment. You can also send us an email with general questions as well.

First, welcome to Suffolk! We are thrilled to welcome you into our community. For general inquiries and course registration/schedule changes, please call the main office to set up an appointment at 617-573-8034.

Every semester, we offer Transfer Advising Workshops to help our new transfer students become better acclimated to their curricula, learn how advising and registration work, how to access on-campus resources, and to become more familiar with their transfer credits and how they work at Suffolk. For more information regarding these workshops, please contact Ashley Leonard.
