PEER TUTOR REFERRAL

For courses not offered in the Lab, we have a referral system. After receiving a request, we will try to identify a peer tutor for that class. There is a modest fee for this option, payable directly to the tutor at the session. To request a peer tutor for a class not offered in the Lab, please fill out the peer tutor request form.
