Who We Are

The Learning Center is the university's primary academic resource center and is available to all Ship students. Our goal at the Learning Center is to help students develop skills and strategies that will enable them to become independent, active learners. 

We provide a variety of tutoring services. We can help you study for an exam, learn better study skills, or improve your writing skills. Our tutors are well-trained and know how to help you succeed. Whether you feel you need extra help or just want to extend your learning in a social environment, the Learning Center can help. Would you like to meet our staff?

Summer Services

  • Writing tutoring for writers across all disciplines, at any stage of the writing process.
  • Learning Specialist support for study tools and strategies to fulfill your academic goals.

How to Schedule

To schedule a writing tutoring appointment or Learning Specialist appointment via Zoom, visit the Student Success Collaborative (SSC), and follow these instructions. Once you confirm your appointment, check your Ship email account for a confirmation email with the Zoom link. Please use this link to join your appointment. 

If you have trouble scheduling, please call 717-477-1420 or email

In an effort to serve all students, we ask that you please do not schedule back-to-back appointments for the same service. We encourage distributed learning, which involves study sessions of relatively short duration (1-hour or less) over a period of time.
