REACH’s mission statement, values statement, goals, and annual reports are available on the REACH website. .


    Academic Coaching helps students who want to improve their academic and self-management skills, such as time management, organization, test taking, study skills, and life skills. Students develop personalized goals and work with our coaches to develop self-advocacy and become independent, life-long learners. Learn more on our Academic Coaching website.

    CLEP REACH provides tutoring support for students who are interested in taking a CLEP (College-Level Examination Program) test to earn college credit. Over 33 tests are offered. These subject tests and information on taking them at UofL’s Testing Services can be found at

Under Kentucky state law, identified students are required to register for a section of GEN 105 (2 credit hours) in their first college semester. Find more information on GEN 105 on the REACH website.

    The Hackademic Series, available to all UofL students, are 50-minute workshops that help students develop effective academic strategies and skills (e.g., mindset, developing grit, time management, studying smarter, note-taking, textbook reading, test-taking, preparing for finals, and becoming a disciplined student).

    Structured Learning Assistance (SLA) embeds multiple peer tutors into 5 key STEM classes (BIOL 240, CHEM 105, CHEM 201, MATH 111, and MATH 180). SLAs help faculty with active learning and application exercises in the classroom as well as providing tutoring sessions each week.

Resources include knowledgeable tutors, a mini-computer lab for mathematics software, and web-based instruction. Find more information on mathematics tutoring on the REACH website.

    Special Topics in College Mathematics (GEN 103 and GEN 104) are three credit hour intervention courses in mathematics that are offered through REACH Math Resources. These courses are designed for students who are not eligible to take the mathematics or quantitative reasoning course required for their intended major/program (due to ACT or SAT math sub-scores or math placement test scores). GEN 103 (for non-STEM majors) or GEN 104 (for STEM majors) are computer-based courses that focus on pre-algebra and algebra topics--such as linear equations and factoring--and utilize an online homework, tutorial, and assessment program. Successful completion of GEN 103 and/or GEN 104 is required for students to progress to the mathematics and/or quantitative reasoning courses required for their program. More information on intervention coursework is available on the REACH website.

    The Math Xcelerator Program offers students who place into GEN 103 or GEN 104 a free, three-week intensive review during the summer. Students qualify if their ACT math sub-score is between 0-18, SAT math sub-score is between 0-490, or their Accuplacer score is between 200-262. Successful completion of the program reduces the amount of intervention coursework for the fall semester.

    The Speed Calculus Preview Program is a fee-based summer program designed for first-year engineering students. Although students may be referred to this program based on their standardized test scores, it is highly recommended to all admitted engineering students prior to their first fall semester. This program provides an advanced algebra review to help students prepare for calculus in the J.B. Speed School of Engineering.


    The REACH Ekstrom Tutoring location (first floor learning commons) offers scheduled and drop-in tutoring and test reviews for select College of Business courses (e.g., Accounting, Computer Information Systems, Economics, Finance, Marketing). Additionally, we help students understand the most common technologies used on campus including Microsoft Office Suite products, Blackboard, ULink, email, and basic computer operations. To learn about services, times, and locations, go to and select “click here to see if REACH offers support for your course.”

    Advice and Tips to Avoid Being Scammed

    College students are a vulnerable population for scammers. There are scams that have been created specifically to target the college population. Scammers want you to make decisions in a hurry, and they might even threaten you once they have your money. Before you give up your money or personal information to anyone, slow down, check out the story, do an online search, consult an expert, or discuss it with a family member or friend.

    Below are some tips and warning signs to avoid being victimized by a scam:

    1. To avoid scam attempts — Never give out your personal information (name, address, date of birth, banking account information, user name, password, or social security number) to anyone unless you are 100% sure of the entity being a legitimate organization or financial institution. Make sure you always log into a website by going directly to the organization’s URL, and always check the address bar to make sure you have not been redirected to a copycat site as part of a fraud. Whenever in doubt, contact the company directly, and if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
    2. Free Public Wi-Fi — Whenever using an unsecured connection, never login to sensitive sites, like your bank account. Additionally, using password protection software and encryption can also make your activities harder to track.
    3. Behavior blackmail — Always be mindful of your behavior and surroundings. Make sure you do not upload sensitive pictures or videos to social media sites that may be a bit reckless, embarrassing, or harmful to your reputation. Scam artists prey on vulnerable situations; they access this information and use it as a tactic for blackmailing students to extort money.
    4. Fake credit card or financial scams — Be aware of credit card or financial loan solicitations that are received through email or phone calls. Scammers are using these methods as a tactic to gain access to your valuable personal information. Never respond to any phone or email solicitation attempts for these offers. If the offer sounds too good to be true, it most likely is a fraud. If you are looking for loans to pay educational expenses, consult the University of Louisville’s Financial Aid Office or reputable loan providers. Never give out your personal information to any unknown source.
    5. Advance fee scams — If you are presented with an offer that requires you to pay an upfront fee to receive funds or services in return, do not respond to the email or immediately discontinue the phone call. Solicitations for upfront fees are most likely coming from a fraudster; do not provide any upfront payment or personal information.
    6. Never deposit a check and wire money back — By law, banks must make funds from deposited checks available within days, uncovering a fake check can sometimes take weeks. If a check you deposit turns out to be a fake, you are responsible for repaying the bank.
    7. Spot imposters — Scammers often pretend to be someone you trust, like a government official, a family member, a charity, or a company you do business with on regular basis. Never send money or give out personal information in response to an unexpected request whether it comes as a text, a phone call, or an email.
    8. Hang up on robocalls — If you answer the phone and hear a recorded sales pitch, hang up and report it to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) at These calls are illegal, and often the products are bogus. Do not press 1 to speak to a person or to be taken off the list. That could lead to more calls.
    9. Be skeptical about free trial offers — Some companies use free trials to sign you up for products and bill you every month until you cancel. Before you agree to a free trial, research the company and read the cancellation policy. Always review your monthly bank statement for charges you do not recognize.
    10. Sign up for free scam alerts from the FTC. Get the latest tips and advice about scams sent right to your inbox.
