These services are provided in the lowest level of McCutchan Hall only during our hours of operation:

  • Monday through Thursday: 8 a.m. to 9 p.m.
  • Friday: 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
  • Sunday: 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. These sessions only will be held in Andersen Library Room 2120

No-Show Policy

Our "No-Show" policy is that after three missed appointments without canceling (or what we call "no-shows") you are prohibited from booking further appointments for the current term and can only utilize the service on a walk-in basis. Sessions may be canceled up to an hour prior to the scheduled session. Students who do not cancel in time and fail to appear for a session will be counted as a "no-show." We have this policy to try to ensure that all students needing help will be served.


Appointments can be made by contacting the tutors via email.
