Help with course work
The University Tutoring Center offers an online service through Triton Tutor, an application within your Canvas Courses. If your course is equipped with supplemental instruction, sessions will still be available via Zoom. Check with your instructor for times and the appropriate Zoom link. Your instructors remain committed to your success and will share with you how to connect with them for assistance or office hours.
Services that remain open
This is an evolving situation; please consult umsl.edu for any changes. Currently, the university will remain open and operational, including computer labs, advising offices, student academic support services, tutoring centers, libraries, residence halls, dining services, and all other student services to ensure students can continue their education from wherever best suits their individual needs. The Recreation and Wellness Center will be closed. UMSL is also prepared to provide individualized support via phone, online and in person to eliminate any disruption in services.
Contact this service for assistance with your medical or mental health needs or for accommodations to help bolster your learning experience if you have diagnosed disabilities. Check out the Virtual Relaxation Room for exercises you may find helpful in this stressful time.

Partnerships and instructional support
Some of your instructors may not have actively used Canvas in your in-person courses. Some instructors will be new to online or remote teaching. UMSL faculty have worked collaboratively with a team of experienced professional staff to help support their shift to remote teaching, including online instructional designers, instructional technologists, teaching experts and seasoned online instructors who have volunteered to serve as faculty peer mentors. This team is working with your instructors to design a great online learning experience for you!
Flexibility and empathy
We understand that this has been difficult for all of you. Please seek support when you need it, be forgiving of others and remain engaged with your peers. You have already cultivated relationships within your face-to-face classroom, be proactive in maintaining those relationships. If you don’t know how to do so, don’t hesitate to ask your instructors to provide a medium on Canvas where that can occur.
