Peer Tutoring

Peer Tutoring is available for many courses to students who show need by meeting qualifications including having a C- or lower in the course or having tutoring listed in their accommodations. Peer Tutoring is offered for subjects that the Student Tutoring and Computer Lab professional tutors do not cover.

To receive peer tutoring assistance, please complete the Request for Tutoring Assistance application [pdf] and return to the Peer Tutor Coordinator at the Student Tutoring and Computer Lab.

A tutor will be matched with you as quickly as possible; however, a delay in processing your request may be due to an inability to find a tutor for the subject area. Tutors cannot be guaranteed for every course.

Tutoring sessions are limited to a total of ten hours per class per semester.

Contact the Peer Tutor Coordinator for more information.
