Appointments

If a tutor is available when you drop in, the tutor will assist you. However, we recommend an appointment, particularly if the time you have available for tutoring is limited. It is more likely that you can schedule a preferred day and time if you schedule a day or two before your deadline.

Confidentiality

We do not discuss your work with your professor unless you give us permission to do so.

Cost

There is no cost for students enrolled at Penn State. It is a service provided by the University.

Eligibility

Any student currently enrolled at Penn State Harrisburg in the course for which he/she wishes to be tutored is eligible.

World Campus Students

These requests are decided on a case-by-case basis, since there are details that need to be clarified by the World Campus instructor. Usually we can tutor you, but the World Campus instructor needs to be informed and give us guidelines.

Limits on the number of hours a student can be tutored

Students are limited to two hours per week per course for scheduled tutoring unless there are extenuating circumstances. If a writing or math tutor is available, students may drop in for additional time.
