Peer Tutoring Application

Students who apply and are accepted for Peer Tutoring will be enrolled EDUC 387, a 3-credit, pass-fail course that fulfills the EE/High-Impact Experience credit requirement. The course meets the same time as peer tutoring. The first two weeks are training; the rest of the semester is peer tutoring. To become a peer tutor, you must have an overall 3.0 GPA or higher and at least a B in the courses you wish to tutor.
