STAR-NY Online Tutoring Service

This program provides free online tutoring for enrolled SUNY Plattsburgh students in several subject areas.

Online tutoring through STAR-NY is free. Twenty-five SUNY colleges participate in online tutoring as part of a shared services consortium. Each participating SUNY — including SUNY Plattsburgh — identifies trained and qualified tutors to provide online tutoring. Depending on the night, your tutor may be from SUNY Plattsburgh or may be from SUNY Morrisville, SUNY Cortland, etc.
