Academic Support Center Policies and Guidelines
Scheduling Tutoring Appointments
- When scheduling your appointments in person, you will need to show your student I.D. with a current semester sticker or your current class schedule. When scheduling an appointment over the phone, please be sure to give us your correct student number.
- Walk–in for Math and Science Tutoring (Biology and Chemistry)
Students are able to access up to 2 hours (or more if needed) of Math and Science walk-ins. You will need to sign in (with your student number) and out on the tutor’s log each time that you meet with a tutor.
- Walk-in and appointment for Writing
Writing walk-ins are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Every 15 minutes, the tutor will see the next person waiting. You should have your question(s) ready for the tutor. For example, “Could you explain a thesis statement; I don’t understand what it is?” or “Could you explain how to use commas?” The tutor will not proofread or edit your paper.
Academic Support Center Tutoring Policies
- The goal of tutoring is to make you an independent student by assisting you in the learning process.
- Be sure to bring your textbook, syllabus, assignments, and a graded sample of your work, if possible. Write down any questions you have.
- A student may receive up to two hours of tutoring appointments per week. Your appointment may be shared with another student.
- A student may attend walk-in sessions up to 2 hours per day.
- Students may not skip classes or labs for tutoring.
- Tutors will not do students’ assignments, nor proofread papers.
- Tutors do not have access to quiz or test questions.
- Tutors will not take on the role of an instructor.

- Check with the receptionist to verify that your course is covered in walk-ins.
Academic Support Center “No-Show” Policies
As a courtesy to other students and your tutor, cancel at least 2 hours prior to your appointment or you will receive a “no-show”.
After two “no shows”, you will be required to speak to the Coordinator who will assess your tutoring needs which may result in the loss of your tutoring assistance.
“No-show” policies will be enforced each semester.
Please come in or call to cancel your appointment at 1-800-995-5222, ext. 4057 or 440-366-4057.
