Making Appointments

  • Students can schedule appointments online or by calling or visiting the campus they wish to receive services:
    • Griffin: 770-229-3078
    • Flint: 706-646-6397
    • Henry: 770-914-4411
  • You may schedule two appointments (30 minutes) per subject each week.
  • After two scheduled appointments, students must be a walk in the remainder of the week. Be mindful that a tutor may not be available during a walk in, but we almost always have peer mentors on hand who can help you with something!
  • Students are required to call if they cannot make a scheduled appointment. Failure to cancel appointments will result in being denied scheduled appointments for the rest of the semester.

Center Guidelines

  • Sign in at our tracking station every time you visit the center, even if it is just to make an appointment or ask a quick question.
  • Come with material to work on in your session, including copies of assignment guidelines and relevant course textbooks.
  • Friends and family members may not participate in individual tutoring sessions, but any student is welcome in the center as long as he/she is not causing a disturbance to those who are working.
  • Plan to arrive early for scheduled appointments so you can get yourself organized and be prepared to begin on time.
