The Academics Commission works toward fostering a positive academic environment within the Society through conferences, tutoring services and student advocacy.
What does the Academics Commission do?
ASUS PEER TUTORING
ASUS Peer Tutoring (APT) is a new and improved service that partners upper-year students who have excelled in courses with students who need some help. At $15/hr, APT is both the cheapest tutoring service in Kingston, and the highest paying undergraduate job on campus. Visit the link below to get a tutor or sign up to become one yourself. Bursaries are also available for students in financial need.
