Peer Tutoring Policies

Please note that by making a Peer Tutoring appointment, you agree to adhere to the following policies:

  • In order to receive a tutor from the ERC, you must be registered in the course in which you wish to receive tutoring.
  • The Peer Tutoring program has the following appointment limits: Per course, a student may sign up for 1 Weekly appointment OR up to 2 Single appointments (if available) in a week.  Students who elect to participate in Weekly appointments have the option of also signing up for 1 Single appointment.
    • Any student who attempts to sign up for appointments beyond these limits will have their over-limit appointments cancelled at the discretion of ERC staff.
  • You will arrive on time for your tutoring appointment.
    • In the case of Weekly appointments, you will meet with your tutor every week after signing up or risk losing tutoring privileges for the remainder of the semester.
  • If you need to cancel an appointment (Weekly or Single), you must email your tutor at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled start of your appointment.
    • Repeated cancellations may jeopardize your participation in the Peer Tutoring program.
  • All tutors and tutees are expected to adhere to the Academic Conduct Code. Any work submitted by a student must be their own. Any deviation from this may be considered academic misconduct. Any violation of the Academic Conduct Code will result in immediate termination of Peer Tutoring services.
