About CAPS

CAPS is the learning assistance program available to UNM students enrolled in undergraduate classes. All CAPS tutors are UNM upper-division undergraduates and graduate students that have undergone intensive training. CAPS tutor-training program is nationally certified by the College Reading and Learning Association (CRLA).

CAPS has five programs that help student meet their academic goals and needs. Depending on the classes you are taking and your goals, one of our programs or services may be the right fit for you. We offer learning assistance in most undergraduate courses in a variety of formats: Supplemental Instruction, online tutoring, drop-in tutoring, workshops, and language conversation groups.

What to expect from our services?

  • Dedication to programmatic excellence. CAPS works closely with department, faculty, and campus organizations to identify and respond to student learning needs.

  • Welcoming and supportive environment. All student employees are trained in customer service, professionalism, and communication to help ensure that every interaction is positive. We seek to understand the unique and holistic needs of each individual student. We give equal treatment to everyone, no matter their color, race, nationality*, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, age or any other protected class.

  • We respect student privacy. CAPS upholds strict student privacy (FERPA) regulations, and we respect the privacy rights of all students.
