Tutors may only be provided by UALR Student Support Services to UALR SSS students. Active SSS participants are encouraged to request a tutor for the current (or up-coming) semester by filling out the online tutor request form.
Please note: Many SSS students will be assigned tutors without having to make a request, based on the course(s) being taken, overall GPA, and tutor availability. If you have not been assigned a tutor, or need one for a different class, feel free to fill out the tutor request form.
Students will work directly with tutors to set a regular, weekly tutoring schedule for the entire semester in order to remain successful in their academic progress.
If you would like to request an individual tutor, you will be asked to agree with the following statements:
- I am an active SSS student who has completed the SSS application and been accepted and oriented into the program. (This is separate from UALR admissions.)
- I will come prepared to all scheduled tutoring sessions and work cooperatively with the tutor.
- If I must cancel a tutoring session, I will do so at least 24 hours in advance, except in the case of an emergency.
- I understand that I will be considered a “no show” if i do not show up for a scheduled tutoring appointment and do no give advance notice to my tutor. I agree this is unacceptable and may require meeting with a staff member of SSS before being able to attend any subsequent individual tutoring sessions.
