Center for Academic Assistance and Training (CAAT)

We welcome all EOP students wanting to utilize our tutorial services, which are offered at no charge to EOP students throughout their academic tenure at SDSU.

EOP’s CAAT (Center for Academic Assistance and Training) offers one-on-one tutoring in virtually every academic subject.
Walk-in labs for writing and mathematics are available to get quick answers to specific questions or to brush up on concepts.
CAAT also offers workshops, such as GRE and WPA, to prepare for the Graduate Record Exam and the Writing Placement Assessment.
Occasionally, CAAT is able to offer additional workshops, such as scholarship essay writing, wellness, time management and note taking.
EOP students who utilize CAAT are predisposed to persist and succeed in achieving the highest possible outcome in their goal to graduate.
EOP is proud to provide a warm, safe, and collegial learning environment for you. We hope you will come and take the opportunity to take advantage of our services, private study rooms, and the free usage of our computer lab.

I wish you the very best and I will be looking forward to your next visit.
