On Campus Tutoring Policies
Thank you for scheduling a tutoring session. We are excited for your appointment and look forward to meeting with you.
To prepare for your appointment, please abide by the following Tutoring Rules:
- Read materials and textbooks, complete any homework or study guides and come prepared with questions over specific content.
- Bring your own supplies and be prepared to take notes. (Tutors are not allowed to share their own notes with students.)
- Limit interruptions during your session. This includes no texting, phone calls or emailing during the session and no side conversations with others.
- Be on time for your appointment. (For more information on rescheduling, see the Rescheduling, Late & No Show Policy below.)
- No eating during tutoring sessions, unless approved by the tutor.
Rescheduling, Late & No Show Policy
We understand things come up and want to give you flexibility with your scheduling. If you need to reschedule or cancel your appointment, we ask that you do the following:
- Reschedule or cancel your appointment in RegisterBlast up to two hours before your appointment. If you are unable to meet this deadline, you may call the Success Center at (402) 552-3946 or (402) 552-2694.
- If you arrive more than 10 minutes late to your scheduled appointment, you may be asked to reschedule. If the tutor is able to fit you in, you will still need to end the appointment at your originally scheduled time.
- Failure to reschedule or cancel 2 or more appointments within a semester will result in the inability to schedule online appointments until the student meets with the Coordinator of Student Success to discuss time management skills.
- Showing up more than 10 minutes late for 2 or more appointments within a semester will result in the inability to schedule online appointments until the student meets with the Coordinator of Students Success to discuss time management skills.
Tutors are a resource for you. They will not complete your homework, projects or assignments for you, but will help you navigate through requirements or content. To maintain academic integrity, tutors will not: share notes with you, provide prior test questions and answers or access their past assignments.
- Students found guilty of a violation of academic integrity are subject to disciplinary action. The Academic Integrity policy (SW-25) and procedures may be found in the Academic Integrity section within the Academic Catalog.
Code of Conduct
Tutors are students who are providing a valuable service. They will treat you with respect and we expect the same from you as well. Tutors have the right to end a session prematurely or may call in a staff member to assist if they feel a student is in violation of the Code of Conduct Policy (SW-18). Success Center staff may also intervene if they witness a violation of the Code of Conduct Policy (SW-18).
- Students found guilty of a Code of Conduct violation are subject to disciplinary action. The Code of Conduct policy (SW-18) and procedures may be found in the academic catalog.
