Academic Peer Mentors

OU’s Academic Peer Mentors (APMs) live in the residence halls and apartments, and help other students succeed academically. They offer free tutoring at various locations, including Hamlin, Hillcrest, and Oak View halls. Tutor nights are held Monday-Thursday from 8 - 11 p.m. in both locations.

APMs host programs on topics like time management, motivation and goal-setting. They are also available for individual help at any time. If you would like to reach an APM for support, please email OUAPM@oakland.edu or call (248) 370-3570.

You can be an APM, too — learn how.

Get Rewarded
APMs distribute Study Bucks to residents they "catch" studying. Everyone who earns a Study Buck is then entered into a drawing to win fun prizes and OU swag!

Get an APM Loyalty Card from any APM and receive 10 stamps on it, and you’ll also get a prize. You can earn stamps by:

  • Attending an APM program
  • Attending APM Tutor Nights
  • Reaching out to an APM with an academic support question or request for tutoring
  • Coming to an organized study session
  • Bringing a graded assignment to an APM for review
  • Attending an FYE Field Trip

The fine print: Only an APM can stamp your card; however, you may have multiple APMs stamp your card (you are not limited to only one staff member). There is a new card each month, and stamps from a previous card do not roll over to the following month. Loyalty Cards must be turned in to an APM on the last day of the month by 5 p.m. to be eligible for a prize.

Have questions? APMs are always available to help you.
