*NOTE: If you book online, you are only able to schedule a one-time appointment. The Visor Center will then automatically schedule you for recurring, weekly sessions for the remainder of the semester at the time/day you selected. Please note our attendance policy: If you do not attend your first tutoring appointment, you will be removed from that tutoring session. If you do attend your first appointment, after that you are allowed to miss two sessions. Once you miss a third session, you’ll be removed from that session and you would need to come to the Visor Center to make an appeal to be reinstated in tutoring. If you feel that you no longer need tutoring, just let the front desk know and we'll cancel your recurring sessions with no penalty.
