  • What is the SAC?
    The SAC is a place where you can get help in understanding concepts taught in Statistics 251, 301 and 401. We can assist with lecture material, homework, and help prepare you for exams.
  • Do I need to make an appointment to get help at the SAC?
    No, just come in when we're open (see schedule).
  • I really liked the tutor who helped me last time. Can I make an appointment so I can make sure he/she helps me again?
    We can't make appointments, but you can check with the tutor you liked and ask them what their schedule is.
  • Who works at the SAC?
    All tutors are qualified graduate or undergraduate students who excel in programs that require lots of statistics.
  • Can I check the answers to my homework at the SAC?
    Yes and no. To check just the answers, you should see your professor during office hours. When we assist with a specific problem, however, we'll let you know if you've done it correctly.
  • I'm not in one of the Statistics classes listed, but my class is using statistics and I don't understand. Can you help me?
    Unfortunately, not at this time. Our resources and space are very limited, and we are funded by lab fees paid by students in Statistics 251, 301 and 431(formerly 401). Please see your professor during their office hours if you need help with another course.
  • I'm a graduate student and need help with the analysis in my thesis/dissertation. Can you help?
    No, but you can got to the Statistics Consulting Center in Brink 400 and they will provide assistance. For the schedule please go to
  • My question isn't answered here. Where can I find the answer?
    Drop by or send us an email and if we can't answer it, we will try to point you in the right direction.
  • I didn't like the help I received. Who should I talk to about this?
    We are very sorry that you were not happy with our services. Please contact Renae Shrum, the SAC Coordinator in person or send her an email at
