SMART Center Tutoring will begin each semester during the second week of classes and run through the Study Day of each semester.

All SMART Center tutors are required to tutor at least 4 hour per week. We have expanded our availability to ensure that students can find an appropriate tutoring time slot that fits best within their schedule.

Each tutor can host up to 3 students per one tutoring session (1-hour session). All tutors will host drop in tutoring hours throughout the week. Students who attend drop in tutoring are required to sign in and out using the penji app. If unsure how to do this, please speak with a tutor during your tutoring session.

If a course taught in the College of Sciences and Mathematics is not offered, please contact the SMART Center to request a course. All requests will be reviewed. If a tutor can be located for the course requested, you will be notified. Otherwise, please contact Learning Support Services or another tutoring center on campus, to see if they may have a tutor available who can assist with your course.
