Tutor Service: FaQ

If you need help, check out this guide!
Tutoring is the most effective when started at the beginning of the term. However at any time during the semester that one thinks one needs help, one can schedule an appointment.
Tutor Centers are located on Main Campus in the Library and at the Lozier Professional Center in West Omaha.
Illustrated directions can be found here.
Students must create a WCONLINE account that is separate from BRUIN, but the email address/username and password can be the same.
The number of sessions students are able to use tutoring services is unlimited.
Exception: Tutoring services are not available for college credit granting exams such as SAM, CLEP, or DSST.
You can schedule your session for thirty or sixty minutes.
Sessions are limited to one hour to allow students time to apply the concepts covered during their session without the assistance of a tutor.
The system only allows a two week schedule, so students can schedule two weeks on advance on a regular basis.

Accounts are automatically disabled after the second time a student does not cancel an appointment prior to two hours of his/her appointment. To have it reset contact the Tutoring and Study Skills Program Manager, Rachael Davis at 402-557-7426.
