CAPS Essentials

What is CAPS?

CAPS is a free-of-charge educational assistance program available to UNM students enrolled in undergraduate classes. The tutors at CAPS are UNM upper-division undergraduates and graduate students. The CAPS tutor-training program is certified by the College Reading and Learning Association. CAPS provides tutoring for many undergraduate courses numbered 100-499.

Where is CAPS?

The CAPS main office is located on the Third Floor of Zimmerman Library at the top of the stairs. Individual tutoring and drop-in tutoring labs are held at CAPS on the Third Floor of Zimmerman Library. Tutoring is also provided in the Student Union Building (SUB), Humanities Building (HUM), Mesa Vista Hall (MVH), and Student Support Services Center (SSSC). For more information and campus maps visit CAPS Locations.

Who uses CAPS?

All UNM students can use CAPS services for undergraduate courses they are currently enrolled in at UNM’s main campus or through UNM’s Extended University Program.

CAPS maintains a policy that does not allow children to accompany students in service areas. As an alternative, CAPS highly recommends the use of its online services, through which tutoring is available from any computer with an internet connection. One good place for parents with children seeking to access these services from on campus is the family-friendly computer pod at the UNM Women’s Resource Center.

How do I use CAPS?

There is no additional registration required for a UNM student to use CAPS. Student Resource Representatives at all CAPS locations are available to answer questions and help students decide which CAPS service best fits their needs. All students must either have their Lobo ID card or know their Banner ID number when using CAPS services. Students may make appointments with a tutor up to a week in advance. Cancellations may be made up until the time of the appointment. Students are allowed three 'No-Shows' before their CAPS privileges are restricted.
