Drop-In Hours

All drop-in hours are held in the Student Success Center (AL-112), though Peer Tutors are also available on Microsoft Teams. To join a tutor virtually during their drop-in hours, open Microsoft Teams and send them a message. Students do not need to make an appointment ahead of time to visit a tutor during drop-in hours. If the listed drop-in hours do not work for your schedule, the tutors can be reached via email to arrange an outside appointment time. Tutors will reply to appointment requests within 24 hours.
