Before applying below to become a peer tutor, please read our Potential Peer Tutor FAQs.  If you have questions not answered in the FAQs please email Christy Clemons (clemons[at]unc.edu).

Applicants must have an overall 3.0 GPA or higher and a B or higher in the courses for which they tutor.

If you are selected as a peer tutor, we will enroll you in EDUC 387, a 3-credit-hour pass/fail course.  All peer tutors must be available one evening a week for tutoring: Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday from 5:00-8:00pm.  The class will also meet during these hours. Prior tutoring experience is not required. You must fill out an application to be added to the course. You will select which class section you’d like to join in your application.
