We offer several online student resources to help you succeed. Explore the many services and resources available to you below. Not seeing what you’re looking for? Please contact us—we’re here for you.

Online Learning Library Services

All of Jim Dan Hill Library’s services and resources are available to Online Learning students. Be sure to check out the Online Learning Guide for Students to learn more about the services and guides available.

Online Tutoring Services

UW-Superior offers professional online drop-in tutoring in a large variety of subjects through NetTutor. These tutors are not UW-Superior students, but graduates of bachelor’s or master’s degrees in the subjects they tutor. Tutoring through NetTutor is not UW-Superior course specific, and the tutors have not taken any classes at UW-Superior.

Students can access NetTutor through their Canvas courses. Tutor availability varies by subject, and the subject schedules can be found on the page.
