Please Note: This is different from when our services were completely in-person!!

Considering our services are fully remote this semester, tutoring appointments will be held even if classes are cancelled.

We understand that, as a result of the inclement weather, some students might have extenuating circumstances limiting their ability to meet. (Example: power/internet outages, work schedule adjustments, etc.)

If you are unable to meet, please cancel the appointment on Navigate. As usual, we will not reschedule an appointment that is cancelled by the tutee. However, in this instance, if it is within 5 hours of the start of the appointment we will NOT count it as a late cancellation.

Please be considerate and cancel your appointment on Navigate as soon as you realize you will not be able to attend.

Stay well and stay warm!
