What if my class requires tutoring, or I get extra credit? 

Do you get extra credit for attending tutoring? Does your professor require you to attend tutoring? Fill out this form to have a proof of appointment emailed directly to your professor: Proof of Appointment Form 


Will a writing tutor proofread my paper? 

Writing tutors will provide cadets helpful suggestions to conceptualize, draft, and revise
content to meet stated expectations of their essay and other writing assignments.
 To maintain cadets' ownership of ideas, writing tutors will not proofread/edit
cadets' writing or produce writing on their cadets' behalf or guarantee grades.


How many tutoring appointments can I have? 

There is a 2 appointment per week limit. This rule is in place is to allow enough space in the schedule for all students to have the opportunity to receive tutoring. If you find this limit difficult, you may provide a recommendation from a professor or disability services to receive more per-week appointments.
