Need Tutoring in Your GRC Course?

Tutoring Services is in the process of setting up a tutoring lab for students who need help in GRC courses. Since GRC 103 is a critical course (prerequisite to a few other GRC courses), this service could benefit a number of students.

The tutoring lab will be open at certain hours to help any student or students who show up.
If you would be interested in getting assistance for a particular course or courses you are currently taking by being able to stop into an open lab environment and ask questions and get help from a tutor on duty, you can pass along your interest.

There is the hope that this lab can be set up in the next week or so, but that depends on response.

For those interested, send an email to with the following information:

  • Confirm that YES, you are interested in receiving tutoring help.
  • List in which course or courses you need tutoring.
  • Give ALL of the times you are free to sop in.
Thank you for your input. Good success with the rest of the semester.
