The Center's History & Mission:

The University Tutorial Center was started in 1979 by students who saw a need to have peer tutors available for assistance on the CSULA campus.

For over 30 years, the UTC and its staff have contributed to the learning and college experience of CSULA students.

The Center's academic mission is to help students better prepare, improve their knowledge and understanding, and develop the skills necessary to be successful not only in college, but in their future careers.

The Center's quality of service mission is to make all students feel welcomed and comfortable; our aim is to create a place where students will want to come back to and tell their classmates and friends about. The UTC values the voices of students and their opinions, which is why we ask students to provide feedback on their customer service and tutoring session experience each time they use the center.
