Schedule an Appointment

To ensure every student has equitable access to our resources and to enhance the effectiveness of our support, please be mindful of your responsibility to commit to your scheduled appointments with the Academic Success Center (ASC).


Should you have more than three instances of any of the following situations, you will be restricted from scheduling any additional appointments until you meet with an ASC Success Coach to discuss how we can better support your needs:



We understand life can sometimes delay your plans. If you run more than 15 minutes late for a tutoring session, we'll need to reschedule your appointment to ensure tutors can manage their schedules and help others promptly.


No-Show Sessions

Your tutoring sessions are important to us, and we look forward to each opportunity to support your learning journey. If you can't make it to a scheduled session, just let us know in advance. It will be considered a "no-show" if you miss a session without notice. 


Late Cancellation (within 30 minutes of appointment)

Plans change, and we get that. If you need to cancel a session, doing so with at least 30 minutes' notice allows us to offer your slot to another student in need. 



We truly appreciate your understanding and cooperation with these guidelines. They are designed with everyone's best interests at heart, ensuring all students can benefit from the center's support.
