FAQs

How do I make an appointment?

Students can call us at (209) 588-5088 or stop in to make an appointment anytime during our regular hours. 

What is the no show policy?

If you need to cancel your appointment for any reason it is your responsibility to call or stop by at least 2 hours before your appointment.  This allows us to offer that time to another student.  If you do not cancel, or if you are more than ten minutes late to a scheduled appointment it will count as a no show.  Two no-shows in one semester will make you ineligible to schedule future appointments unless you first meet with the Faculty Coordinator.

Do I have to pay?

No, Tutoring services are FREE for our students.

What is Skills Development 410 (SKLDV 410) and why do I have to register?

 All students seeking tutoring must be enrolled in this non credit course for tracking purposes. Students should enroll in the course upon making a tutoring appointment.  There are no fees or homework associated with this course. It is required to keep track of usage, so we can be properly funded.

How do I register?

Registration is done through Connect Columbia you can follow the directions here.

How do I get a referral?

You can ask any of your Professors or a Counselor for a referral.

How many appointments can I have?

You are allowed two half hour appointments each week per subject. For example if you are enrolled in both an English class and a Math class you could have up to 4 appointments in a week. Appointments for the same subject can not be held one right after the other. If you think you would benefit from an hour long appointment look in to group tutoring.

How do group appointments work?

Group appoints are scheduled with more that two students for a single subject. You can have a group appointment with 2- 8 students. So ask some classmates to come along! Group tutoring appointments are one hour long. They only count as one appointment. 

Can I schedule for the rest of the semester?

Appointments can only be scheduled up to two weeks in advance.

How can I prepare for my appointment?

 It is helpful to have the following items during your appointment.

  • Notes from Class
  • Class assignment
  • Syllabus
  • Text - some text books are available in the AAC for studying or use during tutoring appointments. Check ahead for availability
  • Questions that you would like answered

Remember tutors are students just like you, and though they have been successful in the courses they are tutoring in, they are not experts.

How do I prepare for my stamp appointment?

If you have a stamp assignment, you are required to make an appointment at the AAC to have a tutor go over it with you. It is helpful to have the following items during your appointment.

  • 2 Copies of the paper
  • The assignment guidelines
  • Questions you may have developed during your writing
